National Housing - An Opportunity For Change

In 2009, X-Architects conducted a research on national housing typologies and how they respond to the UAE’s unique cultural, social and environmental context after the UAE Government announced an ambitious proposal to provide a total of 50,000 homes for UAE Nationals by the year 2030. We saw this project as a unique opportunity to redefine and reflect on the Arab Emirati dwelling and define a new model for the 21st Century.
