LVWORCS, alongside the Center for Environmentally Recycled Building Alternatives (CERBAT), is pleased to announce that it has now taken on marketing efforts for the Open Arms Domes project, an environmentally sustainable construction project started by local earth-building instructor Erik Ven. Open Arms Domes will involve the creation of seven dome structures on the west side of Las Vegas, with a self-regulating, built-in cooling and heating system, powered by solar electricity. It will make use of the Superadobe architecture technique, pioneered by Iranian architect Nader Khalili, which uses sandbags and barbed wire as building materials.
We would also like to invite people to sign up for the Superadobe Workshops held by Erik Ven, which will instruct people in the hands-on application of this construction technique and guide them through the process for a fee. The workshops will each run for six days, and the first three will be taking place from November 3-8, November 24-29, and December 8-13, 2014. A free introductory workshop will be held on November 15, 2014. If you are interested in attending one of these workshops, please fill out this form to sign up or receive more details.
