Rapid Thermal Exchange
Building a production community in the most unproductive land
The project is aim to establish an oasis community based on the finite aquifer resource & abundant solar energy in Western Desert, Egypt, New desert settlement will be organized around water extraction, storage & solar energy harvesting. In the technical level, water management and solar energy will be integrated to provide thermal comfort in living space.
