Cal Earth Vision

  • Superadobe houses address the shelter needs of world’s poorest people.

  • Tags:

    The late visionary architect Nadir Khalili (1936-2008) made it his life’s mission to create sustainable shelter for the world’s poorest people. Under the banner of Cal-Earth, the nonprofit he founded to further his quest, Khalili invented “superadobe” technology, which uses on-site earthen material and local supplies of sandbags and barbed wire (usually in good supply in war-torn areas) to build cheap, sustainable homes. MAKING OF A DREAM documents Khalili’s work and philosophy.
