Living in the desert: how can we create a place to live in a spatial environment that seemingly does not allow it?
The project follow natural resources found along the creek of Ein-Bokek, and examines the human-nature relationship in a desert environment.
Water is the main narrative in the project through the use of an aqueduct –
for irrigation and collection on the one hand, and on the other, to create a unique language that 'sculpts' residential space in the desert, along with the experience of discovery. The principles of this project took into account sustainability, thermal mass and natural ventilation.
