VIDEO: PPN and Berkeley CARES Prototype Homes Co-Design Process

The development of the PPN prototype homes was a collaboration with the Berkeley CARES team. The video above from the Watson Institute depicts this collaborative process from its early beginnings in 2008 through the construction of the prototype straw bale homes which began in 2010. The video provides insight on the creative process and features collaborators including Alice Agogino, Ryan Shelby and others from the CARES team. There’s also interviews with PPN water quality specialist and future resident of the prototype home, Nathan Rich.
