Nader Khalili is an Iranian poet and architect who builds low-cost housing out of bags filled with Earth. Khalili’s Earth bag housing is designed to provide shelter in a pinch for those who need to pinch pennies.

The structures are made using circular bags filled with sand or dirt. The houses take little time to assemble and cost very little to construct. The homes built from the bags include temporary shelters that resemble igloos and marvelously modern shelters with high arching roofs and contemporary interiors. Providing shelter for the less fortunate of the world is a top priority, as is doing it on a budget. Here’s hoping that Nader Khalili continues to construct his low-cost Earth bag housing around the world.
