Resonate Structure (n.) – A structure that responds to the corresponding natural environment and reshapes a distinct regional geology.

The thesis speculates the potential of resonance structure responsive to the dire desertification of Inner Mongolia, where deforestation, widespread mining of goal, oil, coal, and other human activities are constantly turning the once fertile lands into sandy plains. Through adopting the prevalence of sand material and natural wind forces, a built structure proposal is tested to heighten the intimate relationship with the immediate desert environment. The sand is captured and evolved into part of the structure over time, thus gradually formalizing a green shelterbelt for settlement.
