Living Steel is a worldwide programme to stimulate innovation in the design and construction of housing.
The programme was developed to help address societal pressures stemming from increasing urban population densities.
More than €14.25 million has been committed to support the global search for more efficient and effective housing solutions.
From frames and roofs to exterior façades - steel is being used ever more frequently in residential buildings.
That's because its unique characteristics make it a very practical solution.
Not only is steel light and strong, its prefabrication adaptability, ease of cutting and shaping, and its seismic and wind resistance make it the ideal choice in a range of circumstances.
