Certainly the desert achitecture works and has proved itself over time
,so there is no need to change it...depends on where you are,if,like
in Tunisia you can tunnel into the soft rocks and build courtyards and
fountains into the face of the rock,and some use Windscoops to catch
the prevailing wind,Moriah,,you should have Photovoltaics to take
advantage of all that sun and use could position them so that they
provide shade too,on the south side,a whole wall of Solar cladding,,to
power the interconnectivity via Internet and Cell phones to make the
whole wide web a university without walls and conduct business from
the Village level to reduce the pollution of travel....good subject!
