More and more people are discovering the benefits of building with earth. With improved techniques we need no longer fear buildings crumbling away in rain or earthquakes. These are buildings that will last many lifetimes, that provide an even temperature in summer and winter, and excellent soundproofing. Passion for Earth reveals a delightful creativity and pioneering spirit that builds on the heritage of early European settlers who often brought earth building skills to New Zealand: skills that were put to good use in regions where building timber was in short supply. Some of the new pioneers are New Zealanders searching for a better way of building; others are from Austria, Australia, and America. Whatever their differences in vision, method and style, they all have a passion for earth. For those who will be similarly inspired to build something a little different, architect Graeme North, who has worked on over 100 earth building projects, provides technical notes, references, and addresses for further help.
