Whether you're interested in 1960s countercultural lifestyles, a fan of the iconic Whole Earth Catalog or an urban urchin wanting to move to the country and build your own yurt, Shelter is an exhaustive sourcebook and how-to guide on building organic structures from natural materials.
With over 1,000 photographs and illustrations, Shelter celebrates the imagination, resourcefulness, and exuberance of human habitat. It includes a history of shelter and the evolution of building types: tents, yurts, timber buildings, barns, small homes, domes, etc.
First published in 1973, the spirit of the back-to-the-land ’60s is evident, as is the emphasis is on creating your own space with your own hands. It's a joyful and inspiring book.
Lloyd Kahn is the former Shelter editor of the beloved Whole Earth Catalog. He is also an author, photographer, and pioneer of the green building and green architecture movements.
