The Know-Howse Team is a multi-disciplinary group of students and instructors comprising the University of Sharjah (UOS) and the Research Centre Architettura>Energia of the University of Ferrara, Italy (UNIFE), and assisted by the consulting partners Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (SHUROOQ) and Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme (SZHP).

 

Know-Howse aims at increasing environmental awareness by rediscovering a new dimension of “living small but comfortably”, combining tradition and innovation.

 

Know-Howse is not just an innovative project, it’s an education program.

OUR MISSION

Know-Howse is an educational program that aims at increasing environmental awareness by rediscovering a new dimension of “living small but comfortably”. Yet, Know-Howse represents just one tile of a larger framework that involves society, economics, and urbanism. To this regard, the prototype house is conceived as a test-unit extracted form a broader housing development that combines occupants’ comfort with environmental goals, such as reducing land-use and resource consumption.

 

The educational program is directed to the new generations of society members, and targets particularly Nationals, who are responsible for high energy and resources consumption.
