An inspiring vision and practical guide to one of the oldest and most versatile building materials - David Pearson, author of The New Natural House BookFelllow architects frequently tell me they don't like hairy buildings, and so they consign natural building to some fringe activity carried out by a few self-build enthusiastic amateurs. Adam and Katy's book will hopefully lay this nonsense to rest, once and for all. With the level of technical detail and the beautiful photographs it is plain for all to see that buildings, using natural materials, can demonstrate a high degree of excellence in finish as well as providing answers to crucial issues such as indoor air quality and environmental impact. They demonstrate a level of professionalism and aesthetic sensibility that is a very valuable contribution to knowledge in the field -Tom Woolley, Architect and professor at the Graduation School of the Environment, Centre for Alternative Technology, WalesWell researched and beautifully illustrated - this book draws on personal experience, as well as knowledge from the UK and around the world, a must for anybody interested in natural finishes - Chris Lord-Smith, President, Association for Environment Conscious BuildingThis highly informative and sumptuous book shows how the threat of climate change is also an opportunity to make buildings more beautiful - Sunand Prasad, President, The Royal Institute of British ArchitectsAdam and Katy are rethinking how we build and coming up with something beautiful - John Vidal, Environment Editor, The Guardian. 'With case studies and practical examples, the authors reveal how you can get your hands dirty to create beautiful and natural homes' Keith Hall, Editor of Green Building magazine and The Green Building Bibles.
