Football for Hope: Kenya Our proposal for the Football for Hope Centre is designed to provide a sustainable infrastructure for social, community and economic development. Centred around the football pitch, the arrangement of the scheme encourages integration between users of its various facilities. Stepped earth walls form the physical backbone of the scheme, creating a public street for informal traders on one side and grandstand seating on the other. Over-sailing this is a metal roof, supported on timber columns, which provides both shade from the sun and a dignified public profile to the main street elevation.

U-Shaped House Plan This pleasant home looks inward to an inviting flagstone courtyard with trees and plants. Spacious windows fill the home with light, while the earth floors, earth plaster and earthbags provide thermal mass to store excess heat, thus providing an even, comfortable inside temperature in moderate climates. 655 sq. ft. interior, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath; footprint: 27' x 41' My main goal has been to reduce the cost of housing, while also making the designs sustainable, easy to build and livable. The easiest way to cut costs is to build small, so almost every plan I design is less than 1,000 interior square feet.

Natural Building Network by Paula Baker-Laporte and Robert Laporte Can a home with clay/straw walls replace the log cabin as the ultimate symbol of green living? Our homes should be our sanctuaries. They should nurture our well-being. But they often do not.
