Creativity in higher education is at the forefront of the Oman Eco House Design Competition, which encourages the translation of high quality, yet cost-effective eco building designs into sustainable social and economic products.
Capitalizing on Omani heritage in urban planning and architecture, the competition promotes a culture of research and innovation that builds on individual and institutional national capacity in areas of sustainable development – from alternative energy use to eco-friendly material production.
The Oman Eco House Design Competition fosters partnership and co-operation between academia, industry and the government, ultimately leading to the development of national policies to keep abreast of international trends.
