Today the world faces a severe housing crisis.
330 million households do not have access to adequate housing. This crisis is expected to grow to 440 million households, or 1.6 billion people, by 2025. The housing shortage poses significant threats to global security, social health, and economic well-being.
Existing housing solutions are incapable of addressing the shortage.
Existing housing solutions are slow, cannot scale effectively, and are often incapable of working in traditionally challenging geographic environments. Furthermore, the carbon footprint caused by traditional construction technologies is unsustainable in the long run, and the dwellings currently being built for low-income communities require significant ongoing maintenance and have short life cycles. Those dwellings often have poor resiliency against tough environmental conditions and have with many sanitation and health risks.
