Desertification is slowly but surely destroying loads of our arable land. In fact, today one third of the earths land is desertified.
Magnus Larsson, an architecture student takes a very unique architectural view at the problem and proposes very interesting structures that could help bring back greenery to these lands. What is more impressive is the fact that he intends to do this using a certain kind of bacteria that can turn shifting sand into a solid mass.
Its always inspiring when people are able to combine disparate fields of study, like in this case architecture, microbiology and geology, to come up with innovative solutions to problems.
