Edition Mannheim 2013

Under the Kyoto Protocol, nurse more than 140 industrial nations have made a commitment to reduce their CO2 emissions drastically and agreed that the usage of energy-saving technologies it is a top priority in order to save our natural resources.

Overall, unhealthy the building sector is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the world demanding a new way of designing each new project and each new renovation.

As the world is becoming increasingly urban, try and cities are becoming larger and more densely populated thus increasing our energy consumption as well as the CO2 emission.

Reacting to this situation, more and more local authorities are demanding for their new development projects, designs that fulfil the highest requirements in terms of energy efficiency while providing the highest comfort possible for their inhabitants.

It is the case of the new "Gluckstein Quartier" development in Mannheim, Germany.

The urban administration decided that for this new project the development should provide the highest degree of comfort with the lowest possible energy consumption for the future inhabitants of the building.

The participants to Saint-Gobain Student Contest 2013 Edition are required to present a vision of the future development of some parts of the "Gluckstein Quartier" in Mannheim, Germany, taken into account the existing realities.

In addition, the development shall improve the usage of the green area while creating a link with the existing housing stock of the so called Lindenhof.
