‘A Practical Guide to Squatting’ is a Primer on Living a Low-Tech and Self-Sufficient Lifestyle

Comments Off on ‘A Practical Guide to Squatting’ is a Primer on Living a Low-Tech and Self-Sufficient Lifestyle

A Practical Guide to Squatting is a subversive how-to guide on the basics of squatting, illustrating the various tactical and strategic predicaments of inhabiting vacant buildings. While the practice of squatting is controversial, the book’s primary agenda is to reveal a sub-culture of people who squat or glean and sustain low-tech and self-sufficient lifestyles in a friendly and non-violent manner. Many people practice squatting and gleaning not because they have to but because they value what the other half throws away and abandons. More than 1/3 of the world’s population live in homes they built themselves. Architecture is not only practiced by educated professionals, but also by the disenfranchised, the layman, and the collective. Beneath its cheeky imagery, the book is trying to show the world that squatting, gleaning, canning, binning, scavenging and the like is not paltry behavior, but provides a meaningful contribution to a world most of us know little about. + A Practical Guide to Squatting The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Designer Craig Foster Goes Back to the Basics With His Flat-pack Cork Kurk Lamp

Comments Off on Designer Craig Foster Goes Back to the Basics With His Flat-pack Cork Kurk Lamp

The idea for the Kurk Lamp was conceived when designer Craig Foster started taking other desk lights apart. He discovered a huge amount of unnecessary parts, fixtures and glue being used, and was surprised to find that the average lamp consisted of over 30 parts! What devised as an alternative was a simple flat-pack  design that employs cork to create a cool new eco-lighting solution with a unique aesthetic. Speaking about the lamp, Foster said, “The aim of Kurk was to use the minimum amount of parts, without compromising on the personality and character of the product.” Read the rest of Designer Craig Foster Goes Back to the Basics With His Flat-pack Cork Kurk Lamp Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: 100% Design , cork , Craig Foster , eco design , emerging designers , green design , green lighting , Kurk Lamp , sustainable design
