Images from Mario´s design workshop to inspire new building projects in Qatar with sustainable architectural design ideas.

The problem: Since its new gas wealth, Qatar builds after patterns deemed modern - steel and glass skyscrapers - which are poorly suited for the extreme climate. The extreme heat in Qatar is one of the most difficult challenges for architects, usually dealt with by massive conventional air conditioning. The price paid is CO2 pollution and runaway energy costs.

One main topic of the workshop therefore was innovative approaches to climate control, shading and cooling. Other topics in the workshop included new approaches to urban planning and ecologically sound power, water and food systems. Images by the workshop participants: Shuhei Endo, Yasuyuki Takano, Gianni Botsford, Charlotte Skene Catling, Ricardo de Ostos, Marc Frohn, Alexandre Tonneau and Mario Gagliardi.
