Throwback Thursday from the Shelter Archives


Martin Bartlett’s pod home at Pacific High School in the Santa Cruz mountains, Calif., 1968.

This method of construction, developed by Bob McElroy in Big Sur, Calif., consisted of trimming ¼″ sheets of plywood at the top, bending them over, and attaching to each other with batts; shingles on exterior, circular plexiglas skylight at top.
