Where the Streets Have No Name

The joshua tree featured in the artwork for U2's legendary album was from the Mojave Desert, not Joshua Tree National Park. But JTNP has plenty of nice ones to choose from, had they decided to go that route. I spent a night at JT nat-pizzle last month and here are some pictures I took.

Passive Passion @ Princeton Environmental Film Festival 2013

Posted on by Charlie Hoxie

A couple weeks ago I took the train out to Princeton, NJ, to screen Passive Passion for a solid crowd of engaged Princetonians as part of the 2013 Princeton Environmental Film Festival. Local architect Doug Schotland, who has some experience with innovative passive building styles, joined me for a Q&A afterwards - always great to have a knowledgable builder on hand to help with the more technical queries. 

All in all a thrill to be a part of the event and exciting to see so many folks truly interested in how to build some of these homes of the future (that have been around forever).
