Holcim Awards “Next Generation” 4th prize 2014 MENA, Award

The Holcim Awards is "an international competition that recognizes innovative projects and future-oriented concepts on regional and global levels. The competition seeks projects that demonstrate an ability to stretch conventional notions about sustainable building and also balance environmental, social and economic performance – while also exemplifying architectural excellence and a high degree of transferability."

The project underlines an urban energy recovery and development concept.
An industrial quarter currently suffers from an overflow of waste, recurrent power outages, and a lack of skilled labor. Overflowing landfills are in dire need of an emergency waste plan.

A set of sustainable solutions for reactivating the area are offered, transforming waste into energy, and reinstating local artisanship. The project combines a waste-to-energy plant with public facilities and is aimed at raising public awareness regarding an unsustainable condition.
