Additionally, Catholic Charities built 64 units for migrant workers in George, Washington, again utilizing solar by Eco- Depot. These two housing projects effectively


have more power for the buck because they are assisting workforce workers who keep our food supply secure and who need livable habits. These developments are community- based, designed with many hands in the game and sleeves rolled up.


Greening the City Too often, cities and suburbs have to


live with the top-down destructive designs by patronizing financiers and bulldoze- everything developer-builders. Gage has witnessed firsthand what Rathmann has pointed out consistently – the dangerous hubris by developers, builders, architects and politicians. Many have bastardized or co-opted the “green building”


terms or


design” for purely a profit motive. “It’s not exactly sustainable – or green –


putting in a solar panel system for a 4,500 square foot straw bale home that is occupied by one person,” says Gage after getting off the phone with Kelly Lerner who happens to have intimate knowledge of that project. For some Palouse, Indian Hills and


Liberty Lake residents, it’s a bit of a heavy lift to convince others of the mythology of untold happiness living in that 5,000 square foot multilevel well-appointed “rustic” home attached to the three-car garage and with the half an acre of grass in front and a veritable small town playground in the back near the in-ground pool ringed in a thousand square feet of decking. These are the jostling paradigms that


architects, builders and designers are grappling with, especially in a time when oil – our entire economy and industries are fueled by it – will never ever be cheap again.


Strip Malls, Stripped Out Community, The Edge of the Family Unit I’ve recently been to the Phoenix


metroplex – Chandler, Mesa, Sun City, Apache Junction, Tempe – and have seen the foreclosed trophy homes on acres of Sonora Desert and the middle class neighborhoods with the lesser 3,000 square foot single- family houses. Seen from the air over Southern


California, entire planned developments with a pad-Thai-noodle-conflagration of winding streets and checkerboard home sites are now victims of vulture capitalism and of the buzzards waiting for more coyote
