The main aim is to encourage architects and designers from around the world to create highly-affordable, expandable, innovative, and aesthetically-pleasing houses suited to modern Emirati needs.

The cost of constructing the house should not exceed the housing mortgage value of AED1 million. The competition is open for submissions from 25 April until September and the winners will be announced at an award ceremony to be held in November.

The winner of the competition will receive AED500,000 while the runner-up will receive AED200,000 and second runner-up AED100,000. The competition will also award AED200,000 to the best design for a ‘self-sustaining house’ that can go off the grid without water or electricity for two consecutive weeks.

The competition is part of the Dubai Government’s efforts to provide sustainable and comfortable housing to citizens in Dubai and raise their welfare and happiness. Architects and designers are invited to design mock-ups of smart houses that can stand the test of time and meet the requirements of future generations.
