Sustainable Education CMU in Qatar
Doha, the capital city of Qatar, is growing exponentially. And Carnegie Mellon University architecture students are exploring ways to meet its building needs sustainably.
School of Architecture Assistant Teaching Professors Kelly Hutzell and Rami el Samahy were recently featured on CMU's homepage. Hutzell and el Samahy recently spearheaded an intriguing project. Students developed strategies to retrofit an existing villa — the headquarters of the newly formed Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC).
