Building with Awareness Video

You want it, but they won't build it. We've often noted the difficulty in finding an architect to incorporate green elements into residential home design ("What? You don't want a fridge big enough to store a family of elephants?"). In this DVD, designer and filmmaker Ted Owens takes us through the building of his own energy-efficient, environmentally friendly home, showing things like how to lay out windows for passive heating and cooling, build walls with straw bales or adobe, and construct a rainwater cistern. The design's not quite TH, but the principles are all there. $35. 2hr 45min. Via Earth Architecture ::Building with Awareness [by KK]
