Looking for Riversong?
I am posting this on behalf of Robert Riversong at his request for anyone who is interested:
BuildingGreen.com has invited Robert Riversong to contribute a 10-part series for their “blog” pages which explores his radical (as in: to the root of the issue) perspective on appropriate shelter. Look for these topics to appear on a weekly basis, starting this last week of April 2011.
Riversong’s Radical Reflections
Context – land, community & ecology
Design – elegant simplicity, the Golden Mean
Materials – the Macrobiotics of building: natural, healthy and durable
Methods – criteria for appropriate technology
Foundations – it all starts here: how do we begin?
Envelope – shelter from the storm, our third skin
HVAC – maintaining comfort, health and homeostasis
Energy & Exergy – sources and sinks
Hygro-Thermal – the alchemy of mass & energy flow
Capping it All Off – hat & boots and a good sturdy coat
