The Lift:Lab Smart Living, was the latest Lift:Lab initiative which took place in Geneva on 6-8 June, 2018. This edition was dedicated to addressing the economical, social and environmental challenges of urbanization. It was a new experience with a format at the intersection of an innovation sprint and a learning expedition using open innovation and collaborative methodologies to stimulate co-creation.
We welcomed an eclectic team, composed of diverse profiles from the construction ecosystem, including architects, designers, lawyers, private and public developers, as well as the Vice Mayor of Bordeaux. The whole initiative was driven by Clothilde Cazamajour, a lawyer based in Bordeaux, who had attended a previous edition of Lift:Lab in 2017, and who saw in this format and its setting, an opportunity to work on the subject she cares deeply for, Smart Living.
