Art of Natural Building|
by Joseph F. Kennedy (Editor), Michael Smith (Editor), Catherine Wanek (Editor)
The Art of Natural Building is the encyclopedia of natural building for
non-professionals as well as architects and designers. From straw bale and cob,
to recycled concrete and salvaged materials, this anthology of articles from
leaders in the field focuses on both the practical and the esthetic concerns of
ecological building designs and techniques. Includes examples of diverse natural
dwellings, from a Hybrid Hobbit House to a thatched studio and a cob office.
Catherine Wanek is the publisher and editor of The Last Straw Journal. Joseph F.
Kennedy has expanded the boundaries of ecological architecture with NASA's space
station habitability module. Michael Smith is the author of The Cob Cottage
(Chelsea Green, 2001), among others.
