This is the sort of creativity I love to see at work. Earnest architecture student Magnus Larsson is completely rethinking architecture, both in terms of where it can exist, and what it can be made from. In the case of his "solid sand dunes," His goal is not only to provide solid, safe living quarters to the locals, but to actually stop the spread of the desert and create solid structures onto which plant life can cling and even thrive (note: if you don't want to sit through the lead-up to his pitch, fast forward to 5 minutes into the talk).
