Fri, 30 Jun 2017 06:00:11 GMT
 Feed: The Guardian | Search phrase: western sahara |
In the Sahrawi refugee camps in the Algerian desert, Tateh Lehbib Braica – aka "˜the crazy bottle guy' – has built circular houses from waste plastic that protect from wind and sun A group of women drink tea under the shade of a tent and cast an eye over the construction of an odd, circular house. The half-built dwelling is the brainchild of Tateh Lehbib Braica, 27, an engineer who wanders among the workers. On the ground lie hundreds of sand-filled, 1.5 litre plastic bottles that serve as bricks. With them, Tateh has found a way to fight back against the harshness of the Algerian desert that is home to 90,000 long-term refugees from western Sahara. It's not yet that hot, but in summer, when the temperature rises above 50C, it will be impossible to venture out of doors.
