"Shelter" by Lloyd Kahn offers a comprehensive exploration of diverse housing structures from around the world. Rooted in a DIY ethos, the book showcases myriad building techniques, ranging from traditional to innovative, using an assortment of materials. Illustrated with compelling photographs and sketches, Kahn's work is a tribute to sustainable, self-reliant living, highlighting the significance of creating dwellings in sync with nature.

This book is an inspiring voyage into the heart of global building traditions. Kahn doesn't merely present a catalogue of structures; he crafts a narrative that beckons readers to consider the ethos of sustainable living. The visual feast of photographs and illustrations perfectly complements the rich textual content, making it both a practical guide and a source of inspiration. For anyone fascinated by architecture, sustainable design, or simply the innate human desire to create a home, "Shelter" is an enlightening and heartening read. It not only educates but also evokes a profound appreciation for the art of natural building.

In the movie Low Tech Laboratory, Uncle Mud mentions this book to be the inspiration on his path towards natural building and DIY.
