Chris Reinhart shares his vision for re-imagining barn-raising for the 21st century using open source industrial equipment and extreme manufacturing. He wants to help swarms of people work together to parallel process prefabricated modules and quickly assemble tiny homes that are beautiful, affordable, and sustainable.
Reinhart is a designer, builder, and educator who specializes in socially and environmentally responsible building projects. His work has been featured in natural building journals and books, and he has spoken extensively around Indiana on natural building. After a decade-long sabbatical from academia to explore hands-on work, he graduated summa cum laude from Ball State University with a B.A. in Architecture, where the Indiana Architectural Foundation honored him with four Pinnacles of Excellence awards for his design/build and research work.
