Magnus Larsson: Turning dunes into architecture Share this:SharePrintEmailTweetShare on TumblrPocketLike this:Like Loading... Related 2 Comments This is actually a pretty cool idea. I wonder if it has gone anywhere since then? Would the Chinese be interested in this process for protecting Beijing? Could this be used to build a ‘condo’ community if somebody decided to connect the great interior lake of Egypt with the Mediterranean? Imagine several hundred miles of ‘condos’, all waterfront property around a massive lake in the mid sahara. I think that would probably induce some jobs, as well as some rainfall…. Carl LikeLike Oh, just a note. NASA found a “great lake” in central Egypt, west of the Nile that covered several thousands of acres in the past. It was most likely ‘fresh’ at time. I have wondered, if that area was reconnected by pipeline to the Mediterranean, if although the new ‘lake’ would be a body of ‘salt’ water, how much rainfall would be induced in the region from local evaporation? Would it make a ‘green ring’, like an oasis but on a massive scale? LikeLike Commenting below. No spam or trolling, or my cats will be angry. Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
