“We are pleased that these buildings were selected for this prestigious award and honored that Dow technologies were chosen to help bring these unique architectural designs to reality in a sustainable way,” says Jean-Paul Hautekeer, global marketing director, High Performance Building, Dow. “Buildings account for nearly 40% of the world’s energy consumption. We’re trying to reduce that and ‘inspire the futurescape’ by working collaboratively with builders, contractors, consultants and architects to address today’s key energy efficiency and sustainability challenges and to develop technologies that will inspire tomorrow’s smart buildings.”
