This guy figured out a way to make objects in the desert – using nothing (well…. a lot of equipement!) but sun and sand.

Complex columns made from cardboard

Amazing columns made from stacked cardboard…

Calculated with a computer, cut with a laser-cutter.. this must have taken a few square meters of cardboard. But the result is amazing!
