  • Size Matters: Why Little Houses Are So Awesome

    by Jay Shafer

    This'll be my best presentation on small houses, ever! I'll show why maintaining a diminutive footprint is the surest green thing you can do if you're building a new house. I'll reveal why American laws prohibiting small houses are the real cause of the global economic crisis. And, of course, I'll be showing lots of pretty pictures of cute little abodes. Join me... Won't you?

    At 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Friday 9th March

    In Sabine, Hilton Garden Inn Austin Downtown

  • Design. Build. Transform.

    by Emily Pilloton

    Emily Pilloton is a designer and builder, disguised as a high school teacher. In this session, she will tell the story of Studio H, a high school design/build curriculum based in Bertie County, North Carolina, the poorest, most sparsely populated and racially divided county in the state. In one year, her students design and construct a full-scale piece of architecture for their hometown (last year, a 2000-square foot farmers market, along with 3 public chicken coops). This session will make the case for bringing back new, design-infused models of vocational learning as a means to engage students in hand-to-mind creativity, and real-world progress in their own backyards.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Sunday 11th March

    In Ballroom EF, Austin Convention Center
