A cooling units concept made of 3d-printed sand, by PostlerFerguson.
Called Microclimates, the pods would be printed layer by layer on a large rapid-prototyping machine using locally sourced sand and a magnesium binging agent. Water evaporating from the porous material would lower the temperature of the sand, in turn cooling the air as it flows through each pod. A complex internal structure would create a large surface area for this heat exchange to take place efficiently.
