Hi and welcome to the Living Architecture Centre – I’m the director Peter Cowman. It is from here I ply my trade which consists of providing information to people on the design and construction of affordable eco-buildings that respect all aspects of life.

‘Living’ architecture articulates the idea that buildings are a reflection of our selves. When we bring this realisation to the design+construction process it facilitates us getting in touch with what might best be described as ‘the dream of our life’ – in other words, who we are, where we are going and how we plan on getting there! This potential of architecture to help us realise the dream of our lives is generally overlooked because ‘property’ has become so serious, being the cornerstone of the prevailing economic system.

Living Architecture is an easy and fun way of engaging with what are, in fact, the mysteries of life. How so? Because buildings are mostly made of space which is the stuff of the Universe! When we hive off a portion of this space (or properly-speaking this ‘spacetime’) it allows us to manage our connection to what in reality is a ‘scaled down’ Universe.

When we explore our connection to the Universe we discover that all we are, all that has been and all that will be, emerges from this enigmatic space! Designing an ‘enclosure’ or, ‘building’ to protect you as you engage with this Universal SpaceTime is the essence of living architecture!

The Sheltermaker’s Manual articulates the process of engaging with ‘living’ architecture – the creation of meaningful and empowering buildings which provide both physical as well as psychological shelter in harmony with the natural world.

If you are new to these ideas there is a wealth of information here for you to explore. Use the links at the top of the page to navigate your way around the site.
