Lloyd Kahn is the guru of shelter. As author and publisher of over a dozen books on home construction, Kahn has been grappling with the concept of "home" for decades. As one of the founding fathers of the geodesic dome movement, Kahn abandoned the abstract ideas of the dome construction and instead learned from more functional shelters. A true craftsman.

"You can still use your hands to build a home. There's no way that machines can really build homes, other than sterile ones. So, here we are years later in this electronic era, but we've still got these 10 digits and a hammer and a saw.

Shelter is more than a roof over head. The feeling of warmth and security is best described by walking into our house. When people walk in they feel it. It's not science."
