Sand Babel is a group of environmental components designed as scientific research features and sightseeing opportunities for the wasteland. Separated into two areas above and below floor, the main part of each is designed with sand, sintered through a solar-powered 3D printing device. The resulting top structure mimics the form of the desert’s natural phenomena like tornadoes and mushroom rocks!
The structure is split into two parts: the first section is above floor and includes several separate components for a wasteland community while the second is partly subterranean linking several structures and creating a multi-functional pipe network. The style runs on the manage skeleton structure which is high and straight with tensile strength to are eligible of residential use, tourism and scientific research.
The double canal model not only enhances cross-ventilation, but also produces water moisture build-up or condensation on top of the components based on temperature variations. The net structure for the subterranean and surface segments is similar to the origins of a shrub. The style not only helps to keep streaming sand hills in place but also helps interaction among the structures.
