Architecture

Chris Farmer

Inspiration of the Day:

When Chris was 20 years old, he realized that he had never eaten a single thing that he knew where it came from. At 22, he helped start an organic vegetable farm outside of Olympia, WA. Three years later, for family reasons, he moved back to the Carolinas, and soon thereafter, moved to Earthaven Ecovillage, a 320 acre intentional community outside of Black Mountain, NC, with a dream of one day clearing his own farm field. He will be sharing a presentation about a small 12 x12 Microhut that he designed and built of the wood that came from the field he helped to clear.

Handmade Houses

Inspiration of the day:

outsider architecture

In 1967, on the Esalen Institute's property in Big Sur, California, jewelry designer Goph Albitz was mining the possibilities of outsider architecture for himself and drawing inspiration from old Esalen buildings such as the Waterfall House and Selig Morgenrath's design of the Fritz Perls House.
