Multicomfort house student contest

Contest task

As the world is becoming increasingly urban and cities are becoming larger and more densely populated thus increasing our energy consumption as well as the CO2 emission, specific actions to reduce the negative effects are required.

Overall, the building sector is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the world demanding a new way of designing each new project and each new renovation.
Sustainably development of the cities is today a key question all over the world.

With a population that increased over 100 times in the last 70 years while its urban fabric expanded 400 times in the same time period, Dubai is today one of the pioneer cities when it comes to sustainability
