Saharan Desert Homes
Location: Sahara Desert, North Africa
Architect: Magnus Larsson
Scheduled completion date: Unknown
People with grand imaginations usually talk about how in the future we're going to live in the ocean, in space, or on the moon to deal with overpopulation. Swedish architect Magnus Larsson developed the idea of how to live in the desert instead. He proposes introducing an extremophile microorganism that will react with sand to create sturdy dunes that are conducive to habitation of the land. The project redefines the limits that nature has always placed upon us.
