For an innovative perspective on architecture and environmental design and how it can nurture the soul, don’t miss Christopher’s only public talk in NZ
‘In short, this has been a journey from personally artistic design to health-giving place-making – for people, place and planet; physically, psychologically and spiritually; technically, socially and ecologically. A journey from geographically-limited theoretical knowledge to experience-based universal principles sensitive to local circumstances.’
Christopher’s work includes a wide range inspiring projects such as the Goethean Science Centre at Pishwanton, Scotland, Eco Villages, Retreat Centres and schools across Europe and the US. Often built with unskilled volunteer labour contributions. His projects have gained architectural awards, major mainstream media coverage and the cover of Architects Journal (UK). Christopher has written eight books on architecture, Consensus Design process and gift labour, and given innumerable interviews and lectures at architecture and environmental conferences, universities and ecological communities. His work has been lauded by such diverse groups as medical professionals, financiers, ecologists and architects.
‘...one of the seminal architecture books of recent times’ Prof Tom Wooley Architects Journal
‘Christopher Day’s refreshing human approach brings glimpses of just how great the healing and life-enhancing potential of our physical environment can be. May his words be heard far and wide’ Leslie Kenton
‘this gentle book offers a route out of the nightmare of so much callous modern construction. I was inspired.’ Colin Amery The Financial Times
