Soft covered book titled A PLACE IN THE SUN The Evolution of the Real Goods Solar Living Center by John Schaeffer and the collaborative design/construction team, 1997, 187 pages. ISBN 1890132012.
The Real Goods Solar Living Center, which opened in Hopland, California in June 1996, embodies the building materials, landscaping techniques, renewable energy technologies, and human design processes that future generations will take for granted. Its massive earth-covered walls built of straw bales, whimsical "living structures," an automobile graveyard where trees "drive through" cars, and the nation's largest solar calendar, have already surprised and delighted many thousands of visitors. This book tells the story of an unusual building project, completed in an innovative manner, by an irresistible collection of people.
