An inspirational sourcebook of innovative and unexpected green design solutions for our homes that address the environmental and social issues facing our world today.

Featuring nineteen home-building and design strategies that are direct, original and often surprisingly simple, this inspirational sourcebook presents a mix of new technology and time-tested vernacular methods that will change the way we think about ‘home’. With strategies and houses that span the globe, including developing regions in Asia, Africa and South America, the book shines a spotlight on everything from wholly new techniques to creative reuse of existing buildings and materials.

Nothing short of a design revolution is underway as we confront climate change, polluting plastics, global migration, rapidly expanding cities and an ageing population. Part handbook, part manifesto, Houses that Can Save the World shows how architects, designers, engineers, self-builders, artists and others are embracing the new challenges the human race is facing.

Whether you are planning a self-build or are simply looking for ways to make your home more environmentally friendly and efficient, this book is packed with innovative ideas that can help us to make our homes and the world a better place to be.

Paul Pettitt is Professor of Palaeolithic Archaeology at Durham University, specializing in the European Middle and Upper Palaeolithic. His research interests focus particularly on the origins of art and the development of treatment of the dead, and he has conducted fieldwork across Europe and further afield.
