NADER KHALILI........the proposal
ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
Nadar Khalili believes in building with the stuff of the earth....dirt
According to Nadar....
To build simple emergency and safe structures in our backyards, to give us maximum safety with minimum environmental impact, we must choose natural materials and, like nature itself, build with minimum materials to create maximum space, like a beehive or a sea shell. The strongest structures in nature which work in tune with gravity, friction, minimum exposure and maximum compression, are arches, domes and vault forms. And they can be easily learned and utilize the most available material on earth: Earth.
