Sustainable development is also at the heart of this ambitious project with an obligation for designers to respect the "BREEAM outstanding" and "DGNB Gold" environmental labels. The notion of low-carbon buildings, "BBCA performant" and the circular economy approach “cradle to cradle " will also be developed. Finally, the well-being of the occupants will be calibrated thanks to a" WELL" label of Gold level.

The shortlisted practices have now been asked to develop a more advanced architectural design to be submitted to the jury which will rank these projects and propose them to ArcelorMittal and to the Board of Fonds Kirchberg.
