Dare to tread the path at No Man’s Land? Hey, I am not intending at any path or land that is under dispute between countries or areas that aren’t being occupied because of fear or uncertainty. This is the most promising No Man’s Land that is designed to provide a remedy to an ecological crisis. And of course a solution to its basic political problem of the control of water. Located in the middle of the Dead Sea, a New York City architecture firm called Phu Hoang Office has come up with an resourceful proposal to turn the sea into a thriving center for tourism and eco-research. Hence came to life, a cluster of artificial islands called No Man’s Land that would house hotels, create energy, and harvest clean water from the atmosphere.

The highlight of this eco-friendly project is that they have devised a technology that extracts water molecules from the humid air above the sea. The project asks if it is possible to shift the conditions of water supply in the region, thereby providing new conditions for political change. It also asks how architects can participate in these complex political dynamics and decision-making processes.

The design was shortlisted for Architectural Association’s Environmental Tectonics 2007 competition because the design attempts to solve political and cultural issues using design techniques.
