Seb and Isa are two very inspiring and hard-working people who are a pleasure to be around. It’s also very nice to see people putting their beliefs and ideas into action. Their sustainable off-grid project is called La Nature à l’état Pur.
The eco dome is built using plans for a SuperAdobe home, which they learned how to build in California at the CalEarth Institute. You can check out their website here to learn about their courses and programs.
CalEarth was founded by architect Nader Khalili:
“Cal-Earth, the California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture, is a nonprofit organization committed to providing solutions to the human need for shelter through research, development, and education in earth architecture. We envision a world in which every person is empowered to build a safe and sustainable home with their own hands, using the earth under their feet.”
