Abstract:

"The book addresses three distinctive aspects of desert development; regional planning, urban environment and building. It summarizes the results of 10 years of research carried out by the Center for Desert Architecture and Urban Planning at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. In contrast to other books on desert development, the book considers physical development of desert regions not as an end in itself, but rather as an essential precondition for creating socially attractive and desirable environments for human settlement."--BOOK JACKET.
