Competition Introduction

An eco-friendly housing solution - Off-the-grid - Tiny Home Design.

Our lives depend on the systems that complete our housing requirements. What happens if these grid systems fail? The sustainable approach to housing is essential for human survival. This competition challenges you to design an off-the-grid dream home within the limit of 37sq.m, with spaces that fulfill all the basic functioning of the house most innovatively and effectively.

Explore your design thinking to develop ideas that can fit within the limited space, mainly focusing on sustainability.

This competition aims to address the issue of:
• Dependency of housing systems on the grid system
• The ever-increasing wants over needs
• The financial constraints
• The exploitation of Nature – impact on the environments
• Encroaching the space of other living beings

“Less is more.”
– Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe
