Episode 1 Construction System - Fab Tree Hab

Today we welcome Dr. Mitchell Joachim to World House Radio. He completed his doctorate at MIT in Architecture: Design and Computation. He also has two graduate degrees, a masters in architecture from Columbia University and a masters in urban design from Harvard. And he is the co-creator of the Fab Tree Hab.

The theme of this week's show is the construction system of the home. The Fab Tree Hab offers a very interesting alternative construction system. Instead of building, this project offers us the opportunity to grow a home.

The music used in today's program was chosen because the songs had the word 'house' in their titles and because these songs were created by independent artists willing to share their music online for free. The artists can be found on garageband.com a website promoting new and emerging independent musicians. Here are links to the artists:

Join us next week for another episode of World House Radio: Stories of Home.

Welcome to World House Radio

World House Radio: Stories of Home is a weekly podcast that brings you interviews with leaders and innovators in the fields of housing and design. Each week we will discuss the issues and solutions surrounding housing from the local and global perspective.

The theme for each episode of World House Radio draws from the systems used by the Institute without Boundaries program to direct its research and design activities. The systems of construction, energy, food, water, waste, air handling, space usage, identity, social interaction, communication, finance and mobility are integral to the design and formation of affordable and sustainable housing solutions.

World House Radio is a project of the Institute without Boundaries. To learn more about the program and the work we are doing on the World House Project please visit www.worldhouse.ca or www.institutewithoutboundaries.com.
