Middle East Solar Decathlon Competition

AURAK’s team of over 60 faculty and students from different disciplines comes together to participate in the Solar Decathlon Competition. It engages students nationally and internationally to develop the skills and knowledge to design, build and run a sustainable house, making them the next generation of sustainability experts. AURAK’s team is developing a negative energy house by designing solar-powered, ultra-efficient structure that integrates a number of sustainability concepts in accordance with the rules and requirements of the competition. The sustainable house also incorporates the region’s socio-cultural values, as well as climatic needs, using the traditional architectural elements that were used to overcome the climatic hardships in the past.
