Stream Building shortlisted for the 2024 MIPIM Awards

28 January 2024

A manifesto project for PCA-STREAM, developed collectively with Covivio and Hines, Stream Building’s innovations reflect 15 years of research by the agency’s laboratory into the challenges of tomorrow’s city. Mixed in its uses and its wood-concrete construction, the project draws on the qualities of wood to limit its carbon footprint. Its modular, reversible framework makes it possible to change the building’s use without major structural intervention, making it a prototype of resilient architecture. Designed using a circular approach, Stream Building reuses resources produced in situ, while concentrating all the activities of dense urban life. For a meaningful, not just physical, presence in the city.
