3 UNIQUE & EMPOWERING EVENTS
FACILITATED BY PETER COWMAN BArch.,
DIRECTOR, LIVING ARCHITECTURE CENTRE

A CRASH COURSE IN ECO-BUILDING DESIGN

The secrets of eco-architecture revealed

In this concise, thought-provoking and empowering presentation eco-architect & builder Peter Cowman sets down the essential principles governing meaningful and affordable eco-building design as set out in his proven & successful Sheltermaker Design Programme. In this presentation Peter will reveal what can only be described as ‘the secrets of eco-architecture’ – essential knowledge for those aspiring to the living of a sustainable life.

This presentation will appeal to those interested in understanding how the interactions of architecture and life impact our consciousness, our health and our wellbeing. The design principles that Peter will set out can be applied to existing buildings, to buildings that are under consideration for purchase or they can be used as the starting point for an original building design.

SHELTERMAKER THEATRE

An exploration of space, time & the architecture of selfhood

A stimulating, engaging & active exploration of personal space & time as experienced in the Here&Now offering unparalleled insight into the realms of purpose, identity and dream – essential elements within the contemporary desire to create healthy and affordable buildings within which one can discern and follow one’s unique life journey.

This event will appeal to those keen to experience how the dynamics of architecture and life impact on our sense of self, our identity, our memories, on the directions we choose in the living of our lives and on how these dynamics interact with the buildings and places we inhabit.

SHELTERMAKER MASTERCLASS

Creating your personal eco-architecture

In this hands-on, lively, practical & stimulating Workshop Peter Cowman will lead people through the personal architecture design process offering insights, suggestions, warnings and, most of all, encouragement. This design process has multiple applications – from consciousness raising to the creation of low-cost, low-impact eco-buildings to the dreaming of a yet-to-be-lived future. A unique and empowering event, not to be missed!

This Workshop will appeal to those wishing to get the design of their own eco-architecture underway. Participants will be able to lay the foundation for their design and gain understanding of how this can be carried forward and realised in the world.
