This project is an investigation into collective habitation confronted by extreme environmental conditions and contemporary technologies. Dallol is a vision for the emergence of contemporary tribal communities, in the context of rural Ethiopia, resulting in a shifting domestic landscape enabled through the increasing accessibility of technological devices. Nomadism, extreme inhabitation and material ecology reveal themselves as fundamental themes for our understanding of what it means to live together and how this will radically transform in contemporary society.
  This vision employs an experimental design methodology through the use digital procedural tools, in order to design behavioural relationships and examine the possibility of a living architectural condition. Information on climate, geological conditions and local communities was obtained through the use of sources, which formulated the input data for our procedural models.
