Architect designs solar-powered research center to save dying Lake Chad

Lake Chad in Africa spanned over 770,000 square miles in 50,000 B.C., according to Cameroon-based architecture firm Hermann Kamte & Associates (HKA). But over the centuries it has shrunk, dwindling to a mere 1,544 square miles in 2001. HKA hopes to use architecture to regenerate the dying lake, in the form of a desalination and research center called The Forgotten – Dead or Alive.
