An international competition dedicated to architecture and engineering has two KZN students representing SA with their comfortable and sustainable living space designs.
The Saint-Gobain MultiComfort House Students Contest, which has been hosted by Saint-Gobain for the past 14 years, is an international competition dedicated to architecture and engineering students, encouraging the design of comfortable and sustainable living spaces.
The national leg of the Saint-Gobain MultiComfort House Students Contest was held at Saint-Gobain in Johannesburg last month, where a panel of local industry experts selected the winning team to represent South Africa in the international stage of the contest, which takes place in Dubai from 12-15 May 2018.
Seven shortlisted architectural projects were selected from the University of Johannesburg and the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban. The students competed for the chance to attend the finals in UAE.
The winning team, Vahin Parmananda and Mthokozisi Sibisi from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, were selected by a panel of industry experts as our local winners.
The team will compete in Dubai during the international stage of the competition, where they will showcase their sustainable and innovative design which takes into consideration comfort and safety features such as thermal, acoustic and visual properties as well as air quality and fire protection.
The two young men will represent SA and we have faith that they will make us proud.
