Paris is already full of parks and gardens but lack of space limits the potential for creating more on the ground. Promoting energy efficiency in existing buildings and new construction has become a necessity to curb climate change. Following the Climate Energy Plan of Paris - aiming to reduce 75% of the greenhouse gas emissions within 2050 - this “Paris Smart city 2050” is a research and development project.

The famous French architect Vincent Callebaut works on the integration of plus-energy skyscrapers producing by solidarity most energy than they consume for the historical surrounding areas.  The project includes the construction of 8 prototypes of positive energy towers eco-conceived to fight global warming. The towers will be built in different districts around the city each one of which will have a particular use. All of them use green construction strategies like passive heating and cooling, rainwater recycling, and living green walls.
