3-dimensional Energy-Efficient Sand Microclimates to Cool Public Areas

Microclimates like these will help cool urban desert areas

Among sand’s many uses – particularly in industrial applications – it’s the key ingredient in the manufacturing of glass, in paint, and even in water filtration.

Now London-based design firm PoslterFeruson has created a three-dimensional architectural structures, called Microclimates, or cooling towers, that will provide a cool respite from the hot desert sun.
