Letting a little outside in… this building immediately caught my attention and I later learned it may include a combination of bamboo, adobe, wattle and daub, and thatch construction.
Panya Project in northern Thailand is 10 acres of permaculture and natural building experimentation. The eco-community began in 2004 by a group of Americans. Its DIY-savvy residents come and go, learning skills and then moving on. Jenny Pickerill of the Green Building Blog, during her visit in July, adds this great insight:
Panya has put into practice the belief that walls and houses can isolate us from nature and each other and that if we re-design them we can better integrate nature into our daily lives.
This one reminds me of a Tumbleweed Tiny House.
