There are two essential concerns in desertification; one is the cause of desertification and the other is the effect of it. As population increases, the necessity of agriculture as a source of food and economical resource becomes critical. Taking over the forest to extend agricultural area is the easiest solution to the people in
For the high agricultural production, effective agricultural practice must take place architecturally, such as intensive greenhouse or hydroponics that gives high agricultural yield for need of population growth without impacting soil.
Not only addressing agricultural practice, but also, high density population must be re-organized in a way that minimizes living areas on the agricultural productive land. People in
Therefore, high agricultural yield and addressing living areas must happen simultaneously. However, economical and technical status in
I propose a cellular dwelling system in conjunction with hydroponics agricultural practice that can expand and shrink as necessary. This system will provide and organize the living areas as well as agricultural products without impacting soil. This system will also combat with the expansion of the desert and reclaim the productive lands that were lost by desertification through shifting boundary.
