Instruction in Strawbale Installation
October & November 2011
This fall I was very fortunate to have been instructed in techniques of strawbale construction. It was an amazing experience to be able to witness the construction of sustainable housing design for the Pinoleville Pomo Nation.
My participation in this project began my freshman year in the course E10: Engineering Design and Analysis and I continued participating in this project as a researcher as a member of CARES: Community Assessment of Renewable Energy and Sustainability.
More information about this project can be found here:

and more information about my involvement is available in my other project posts on Behance.
