Forward-Thinking Architecture firm is thinking of new ways to build sustainable buildings and structures, focusing on the best methods for improving human life overall with OAXIS. The team recently turned to the Arabian desert for its latest project, with the goal of making the area more sustainable without having to rely on outside sources for certain items.

The desert is an area that is rich in resources, but has very little rainfall and thus it's difficult to grow food here. According to DesignBoom, "people, nature, design and technology are combined in order to serve a specific function: to produce fresh and quality local crops with water saving technologies." This is the main goal of the project by Forward-Thinking Architecture, which in turn will hopefully improve the lives of people in the area.
