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.
