Architect and author Nader Khalili posed this question:

"There are over a billion people in the world who do not have a shelter suitable for living. … How can we build shelters for people in the world who have no money?"

That’s a heck of a question, but one answered by Mr. Khalili — make sturdy homes out of earth, water, air and fire.

Working with and recognized by such organizations as the U.N. and HUD, sadly, Mr. Khalili passed this year. This was a spiritual man who made tangible effects. His work is carried on by his children, Dastan and Sheefteh Khalili. You can visit their updated website at: — with loads of pictures of the various structures.
