Off The Grid Architecture Competition 2022

OFF THE GRID International Design Competition

Tiny house: an eco-friendly housing solution.

INTRODUCTION

Our lives are dependent on the systems that complete our housing requirements, what happens if these grid systems fail? The sustainable approach to housing is important for human survival. Can we design our dream home within the limit of 37sq.m. and off the grid? With spaces that fulfill all the basic functioning of the house most innovatively and effectively. Explore your capacity to come up with 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
