Résumé
For a travelling exhibition in Saudi-Arabia I have researched ways to build with sand in a temporary way. Using the existing sandbag-technique ’super adobe’ of Nader Khalili combined with an inflatable roof a new method is born. This building system allows changes and flexibility when the building travels. It is more sustainable than the current systems and can adapt easy. The design-focus is on traditional Arabian building methods and geometric patterns. The fundaments of beauty and proportion are researched
