I may get my subscription to Natural Home yet

I had thought the International Institute for Baubiologie went the way of the dodo, what with them not responding to my request to make good on their promise to give me a subscription to Natural Home magazine, but I just got an email from them. So they exist. So if anybody took me up on my suggestion that they start their own International Institute for Baubiologie last weekend then you should, um, you know, not.

Anyway, they sent the email to announce their Natural Building, Healthy Building Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s April 19th & 20th 2008.

Here’s what you need to know:

The conference highlights an unprecedented array of speakers from leading epidemiologist and public health scientist Dr. George Carlo who will answer the question “Is my wireless really safe?”, to Dr. Magda Havas and activist Libby Kelly experts in the field of electric fields and their impact on our health. Renowned natural building author Clarke Snell and author Dan Stih will offer insight into current trends.

Entrepreneurs Lisa and Ron Beres and seasoned Building Biology consultants will address the practical aspects of healthy building as well as mitigation when problems do occur. With ample time for audience questions and networking opportunities the event is a rare opportunity to gain an understanding of the importance of this emerging field.

The 2 day conference is preceded by a 1 day learning intensive on the subjects of EMR, dirty electricity and our health with Dr. George Carlo & Dr. Magda Havas. Autism activist Dana Gorman will also be on hand to discuss the EMR autism connection.

Join the Institute for Building Biology® and Ecology as they continue to promote the use of healthy building principles as a means to improve living and work spaces and the health of people who occupy them. Begin to gain the knowledge to make a difference. CEUS offered for AIA and IAQ.

The conference is presented by the Institute for Bau-biologie® and Ecology an internationally known pioneer for over 20 years in the area of healthy building. Platinum sponsors who have demonstrated strong support for the conference and the Institute are Mercola.com, Natural Home magazine, Green Nest, EcoNest, Bio-Solar, Conscious Design magazine and WEHL. In addition Clean Earth Recycling from Nashville is assisting the Institute to make this a more ecological conference.

Hi. My name is Katy. I like it when you write to me and tell me about the cool stuff you're doing in architecture. Yes, I write back.* I may publish your letter and my reply on the blog. If you don't want me to do that, you can just ask that I withhold your name, or if you're really serious about keeping your letter a secret, you can ask me to just not publish it at all. Of course I'll still write back to you. * I hope you'll take this opportunity to share your thoughts with our worldwide audience.

places where you could probably learn more about designing and building in just a few days than I did after a year of grad school

Know of some others I can add here? Let me know. Have you already visited some of these places...or planning on it? Let me know and I will feature your story and your photos here!

I am starting a new kind of architecture school. Unlike most architecture schools, you wouldn't have to submit GRE scores or good grades or letters of recommendation. You wouldn't have to put the rest of your life on hold for 3 to 5 years. You wouldn't have to accrue tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At my architecture school, anyone could come for a few weeks and learn how to build a house with their own two hands. My teachers would take skills and concepts from some of these other workshops I've listed above... except classes would be held year-round to make it easy to fit into your schedule. I would have a number of different campuses around the country that would teach building designs appropriate to the local climate. And I need your help. Can you donate land for a campus? Can you dotate books for a library? Can you teach a workshop? Can you provide start-up capital? Let me know.
