Tackling Desertification Through Architecture

Magnus Larsson has a proposal to build a 6000km living sand dune across the entire continent of Africa. The structure is made from bacteria that reacts with the sand to form a structure. It would be habitable and could provide homes to African people whilst tackling the spread of the Sahara.
