Capsa Design Tomorrow Thumbnail Poster

Construction alone accounts for more than 30% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and must now be reinvited to meet the ecological, economic and societal challenges of doing better with less, reducing its environmental footprint, limit the consumption of natural resources; build more responsibly and sustainably. It is by pursuing these objectives that we engage our energy and our ideas in the development of new constructive ways.

Bio-based materials, recycled, reused, smart and sustainable construction will be our tools to meet these challenges. In the diversity of offer that the construction offers today, the marine container is an alternative offering a great number of assets: modularity, mobility and scalability. Transformable to infinity, the container is the ideal ingredient of the wildest architectural projects.

Reinventing everyday life, imagining new solutions, daring to walk the trails beaten, realizing dreams … the pause our planet is asking for, inspires creativity! It is in this positive and engaging state of mind that CAPSA launches the Design Tomorrow Contest !

What would the workplace of your dreams look like? 

This is the theme of this first design contest organized by CAPSA with the participation of many experts and partners in the world of architecture, construction and container. We all have in mind an ideal workplace, a place where our creativity would be stimulated, where our ideas would be simple to express. A place to share and advance projects in the best way. The workplace can also be a place of life in its own right. A place of sharing, a place of discussion and laughter. The atmosphere of a place is often born of the feeling, of the harmony that it clears.
