The biodiversity of the desert reveals a vast platform for research into natural artifacts. Participants will&nbsp;investigate natural phenomena which include sand dunes, rock strata, rock bridges, canyon, gorge and mountain formations. During the course of the workshop, participants will visit, examine and inhabit two UNESCO world heritage sites: Wadi Rum and Petra; the later named as one of the worlds seven wonders.<br><br>Throughout the design-research workshop, participants will investigate the morphology of the desert and its underlying principles and processes within a computational context; wor...</p>
