THE ART OF SHELTERMAKING – exploring the mysteries of eco-building design

3 UNIQUE & EMPOWERING EVENTS

FACILITATED BY PETER COWMAN BArch.,

DIRECTOR, LIVING ARCHITECTURE CENTRE

SHELTERMAKING IN A NUTSHELL

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 conscious, meaningful and 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.

ECONOSPACE BUILD

P1100292Sml

Enda Finlay is building himself an EconoSpace prior to building himself a house. Here is what he has to say …

“Our purpose for building the 10sqm EconoSpace was to provide us with an indoor space during the construction of our house. We also are looking forward to its future use as a summer house, guest bedroom, artist’s room, etc. We’re building the 10sq design. The plans were easy to follow and the simple innovations, such as the bench and the jig meant that manufacturing the main part was achievable. I love the bench and the jig ideas, once all the measurements have been sorted it becomes a really effective production line, very good systematic thinking!

Initially we will be using it as a site office/storage for tools, etc whilst we build our house…we won’t be living in it but using it as a refuge from the south-westerly wind and rains! Further down the line we’ll probably complete the internal walls.

It was great putting the pieces in places…a family and friends occasion too…possibly going to use sheeps wool insulation or some other reasonably priced sustainable one…I don’t have a good supply of marly-type clay for light straw…although we would eventually like to do the internal walls like that…

These are very adaptable spaces and structures, enthusiasm, hard work and a bit of skill will ensure your EconoSpace will evolve as you evolve.”
