Description - Ritual House by Ralph L. Knowles
The houses we dwell in, the cities surrounding our houses, even the clothes we wear-these are all shelters we erect against the elements. Understanding how the elements affect our lives is more vital than ever. High-energy enclosed
building systems have cut us off from nature, but we can re-connect to our landscapes and to humanity through buildings that honour ecological balance, personal choice, and creativity. By engaging nature in our designs, we can create shelters that are unique to their climate, their region, and their relationship to the sun.
