This project set out to develop a concept for a mobile building capable of providing its own energy and water. The idea was to start from the building's intended use (commercial, residential, tourism, healthcare, etc.) to come up with sustainable living spaces with modular, mobile equipment that can be adapted to different environments and uses. The equipment would not need to be hooked up to traditional utilities, and would thus provide occupants with complete freedom to configure the space they need and go off-grid at the same time.
Brunet spearheaded the LiveArium mobile, self-powered building development project run at IdeasLab. The project sped innovation while generating synergies across the company for greater efficiency. The project was a precursor to the E-na project, which Groupe Brunet is leading at IRT Nanoelec.
