Aqaba Housing Competition: A Competition for the Design of a Model Water- and Energy-Efficient Low-Income Expandable Housing Unit in Aqaba, Jordan

One of the winning entries of this competition was developed into the Aqaba Residence Energy Efficiency (AREE) project, which was constructed in Aqaba’s Ninth district in 2008. The building was developed by the Emtairah Consulting Corporation Amman, Jordan, and was designed by Florentine Visser, a Dutch architect and consultant for sustainable designs who was then living in Jordan.
