Expected to gain gold LEED certification, the Vertical Village by Graft Lab is another Eco architecture found in the desert of Dubai. Designed by Graft Lab, the structure is a multi-use development designed to house residential, hotel, and entertainment facilities while collecting solar energy up to the maximum. Designed to reduce solar gain and maximize solar production, the Village has buildings that are massed as self-shading slabs in the north side of the site on the east-axis in order to reduce a lengthy sun penetration.
The southern end of the site on the other hand is equipped with solar collectors that automatically position themselves towards the sun. It has the solar roofs that break the solar energy and turns it into manageable portions. The roofs also help transport energy.
