Revive: Sahara

by Robbie

The Sahara covers a vast area. Often, air has to be used to transport people and materials which is very expensive. Expensive pipelines have to be built to transport oil, gas and electricity from remote areas. It is hard to provide services in remote regions therefore there is often a lack of medical care.

The challenge is to design an independent and self-sustainable infrastructure for the Sahara community, which also supports the intent to enhance tourism around the region – within a site size of between 500 square metres to 10,000 square metres. Select a site within Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan and Tunisia.
