Solidifying dunes

“Sand dunes are almost like ready-made buildings; all we need to do is solidify the parts that we need to be solid, and then excavate the sand, and we have our architecture ” - Magnus Larsson: Dune architect

Marry Magnus Larrson’s architectural ideology on dunes with my Gold Coast Dune Belt project; we could save coastal dunes from development squeeze and long-term shoreline recession issues. Forget rocks and concrete, approaches to coastal management should incorporate creative design that integrates natural elements and simple philosophy.

I recommend this Ted Talk to all of my coastal buddies and beach gurus. Magnus Larrson believes in opportunities rather than issues. His obsession with sand dunes is even more impressive.
