Shelter Cookbook Takes a Fresh Look at Lloyd Kahn’s Legacy
Leading up to the exhibition, Banchini and Feireiss traveled across the globe to meet Kahn and his wife, Lesley, in their self-built half-acre home in Bolinas, California. The book compiles gorgeous photographs by Dylan Perrenoud alongside an insightful and at times hilarious interview with Kahn, an essay that catalogs “Mycological Curiosities,” and an in-depth “Further Reading” section that provides recommendations on self-build books and other important texts on topics such as shelter, survival, community, design, environment, education, spirituality, and psychedelics.
