Hi all,

I just thought folks might be interested to know that the 
January/February 2000 Issue of Building Standards Magazine is now up on 
the ICBO website. It contains the second feature on alternative building 
materials that we at DCAT helped pull together for ICBO. As we understand 
it, this issue, like the previous alternative materials feature issue 
from September/October 1998 is sold out - the only issues, we've been 
told, that have ever achieved that status.  

In the Jan/Feb issue there is an eight page interview with Bob Fowler and 
me on sustainable building, alternative materials, and building 
regulation. There are also articles about earthships, bamboo, cob, cast 
earth, and earthbag construction. Also on the same site is the original 
Sept/Oct 1998 feature, which had an overview article by me and articles 
by proponents with accompanying sidebar articles by building officials on 
adobe, rammed earth, straw bale, sandbag construction and pozzolanic 

I have listed below, the relevant articles, which are all downloadable 
from the site. The URL is for Building Standards Online and it is for the

"... A genuinely fundamental and hopeful improvement in 
`systems' cannot happen without a significant shift in 
human consciousness, and ...it cannot be accomplished 
through a simple organizational trick. This is something no 
revolutionary or reformer can bring about; it can be only 
the natural expression of a more general state of mind, the 
state of mind in which man can see beyond the tip of his 
own nose and prove capable of taking on--under the aspect 
of eternity--responsibility even for the things that don't 
immediately concern him, and relinquish something of his 
private interest in favor of the interest of the community, 
the general interest. Without such a mentality, even the 
most carefully considered project aimed at altering systems 
are for naught." -- Vaclav Havel
