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.

Vietnam is a country in transition. Intrigued by the rapid transformation of Vietnam, one of the fastest growing economies of the world, Mark Ludak and Andrew Cohen have returned multiple times to photograph this region.
