We are delighted to share that MSc Sustainable Mega Buildings student Shamma Tasnim’s project 'The Hyperion Habitat' was shortlisted as a semi-finalist in the prestigious Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) tall building design competition among thousands of entries from around the world.

MSc Sustainable Mega Buildings course leader Dr. Eshrar Latif acted as an advisor during the project development and provided thoughtful insight into the idea generation regarding modular approach, circular economy, sustainability, and the project name selection.

The Hyperion Habitat is a self-sustaining, sustainable, adaptive, modular, low-cost scheme for the Rohinga Refugee crisis of Bangladesh, validated by dynamic thermal simulations and which is convertible according to the social needs making it an intervention that considers the problem with holistic sustainability.
