UPDATE Dec’23:
The Art of Sheltermaking
The Organic Centre, Co. Leitrim June 29-30 2024
This groundbreaking 2-day Workshop will lead participants through the design and construction techniques required for the creation of affordable, healthy and life enhancing natural buildings suited to their personal needs.
This modern evolution of the 10,000 year old vernacular tradition will focus on the creation of buildings suited to garden or forest settings that can be constructed without planning permission.
The workshop will be ‘hands on’ including the opportunity to gain construction experience.

As I am 70 years of age this year I am retired from ‘active service’. However most of my work has been recorded in reproducible form – books, articles, drawings, videos and so on – most of which are freely available now (or will shortly be) on this website for downloading and sharing.

Also, I hold myself available to committed individuals, particularly to those working in groups, who are developing designs within the ‘living architecture’ ethos.  Any such engagement would be conditional upon those individuals or groups having worked through the material available here on the website before any approach to me was made.

ARTICLES These published articles cover a wide range of subjects, are in .pdf format, and can be freely downloaded.

COURSE HANDOUTS  These Handouts were developed for numerous LIVE Courses and Workshops delivered over many years of teaching activity. They are in .pdf format and can be freely downloaded.      Index of Handout topics
