The Green Machine by Malka architecture is bringing green to the sandy and barren desert. The machine is a giant platform that houses a small industrial city on its back. To make the project even more impressive, the Green Machine is actually mobile as well.
This project looks like a moving city of plants with balloons attached at the top. It's a strange-looking platform, but the idea could have amazing ramifications. For desert cities and communities that may not have access to food, this moving garden provides them with a sustainable source.
The Green Machine will make use of the Sahara's resources that often go unused to create up to 20 million tons of crops annually.
