Some really cool displays, innovative architectural designs and amazing materials at the AltBuild show in Santa Monica at the Civic Auditorium. Free admission, $9 to park – open tomorrow from 10 am to 5 pm. Get inspired and learn about everything from drip irrigation for vegetable gardens (hands-on workshop) to the creation of a concrete bubble cabana being built outside of the show – featuring a construction process developed by LA architect Wallace Neff in the 40’s.
Pictured above is an offering from R+U research+upcycle, inc. Their innovative approach to modular architecture delivers sustainable style. It’s hoped that their innovative and beautiful approach to modular architecture will encourage more modular design in the future. It is much more beneficial to the environment and much less disruptive, messy and noisy than traditional construction. These modular apartments are even more evidence as to why modular is the way to go. Draw inspiration for the greening of your environment. Love the Adirondacks made from upcycled milk containers. AltBuild Expo is for the green-curious and the green-committed, industry professionals and regular folks, too. Free valet parking if you ride your bike!
