With housing demands having such a major impact on our lives and our
ecosystems, the need for outside-the-box thinking and genuine
sustainability is not something that can wait for another day. Alternative
home construction is not a novelty. It's a critical link in ensuring that our

we are capable of.

has characterized so much of the housing landscape all over our
beautiful but stressed-out planet.
Building with nature instead of against it.
A home is always more than just a roof overhead, with all the
potential to enhance and enrich our lives and all our interactions with
each other. I hope you'll enjoy this exploration of alternative home
construction developments from every corner of the world.
