“Athena and Bill Steen, co-authors of The Straw Bale House (Chelsea Green, 1994), a book widely credited with popularizing and legitimizing straw bale construction, celebrate in gorgeous color photography the accomplishments of straw bale artisans. Selecting from a variety of building types and applications, they vividly portray the sensuous versatility and cross-cultural appeal of this most accessible form of construction. Accompanying the stunning visual display is a text that incorporates key lessons the Steens have learned in their years as straw bale pioneers. Their insights into design, materials, and construction techniques provide a practical grounding by highlighting the special features and unique personality of each building.”
