          INTRODUCTION

          This article explains the design, construction and energy strategies of LINQ, a netzero energy building that was successfully entered into the Solar Decathlon Middle East 2018 held in Dubai. Students of engineering, building physics, architecture and urban planning designed, built and operated LINQ. It is mainly powered by solar energy and made of bio-materials. Some of LINQ's innovations are the ventilated façade with customizable bio-based tiles, the indirect evaporative water cooling system, and the light building integrated photovoltaic-thermal system. LINQ sent more energy to the grid than it drew throughout the competition. However, energy production could have been improved according to simulations and technical specifications. LINQ is a good example of current and future building expectations—combining multiple criteria, strategies, and solutions—to contribute to environmental, social and economic sustainability.
