B Homes Peter Abrams and Graham Apgar
October 11 - September 28
The B Home Project is a living arts installation based on sustainable building practices. The B Home is the vision of a unique combination of artist and engineer, Pete Abrams and Graham Apgar. B Homes are low-cost shelters with applications ranging from disaster relief to ecotourism to alternative dwellings for under-served populations. As their design continues to evolve, they can also be playful, whimsical and fun backyard escapes ranging in size from single cells to multi-cellular units. The structures are built from shipping pallets and other post-industrial and natural materials. Read the catalog for more information or visit www.thebhome.com.
Join us on Monday, September 28 at 5:30pm to celebrate the B-Homes exhibition coming to an end, located on the Graves Terrace at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton NJ. The B-Homes will be available for purchase via silent auction.
