nader khalili architect, teacher extraordinaire, humanitarian, super-adobe inventor,  rumi translator.   today, we celebrate his time on earth.

arches. vaults. domes. earth. water. air. fire.

those seven ingredients,  basic understanding of the building site (earth content, wind, sun) plus human energy are all one needs to build a beautiful, sustainable structure that withstands and works with the elements.  cal-earth calls them eco-domes.

making this ancient knowledge compelling and accessible in modern times was nader’s greatest gift.

many people throughout the world are learning this technique to build sustainable, cost effective homes, emergency shelters in war-torn or disaster stricken places, schools and eco-tourism.

if you’re in southern california, visit cal-earth during their open house on the first saturday of every month.

earth turns to gold in the hands of the wise, rumi.
