Our Bright Future #11: Paul Richardson on Re-Designing Home and Community in Line with Nature

Posted on

On the path to fully self-reliant, self-regenerative homes and communities aligned with nature and its principles, one of our guides is surely to be Paul Richardson.

After a lengthy career in architecture, traveling the world building hotels and working on other prestigious projects, Paul experienced an awakening in 2017 that led him to re-discover his true mission in this life–to help humankind get back to the land, and bring forward a new Earth through natural and sustainable designs for living at home and in community.

Paul since founded the Haven Earth Center, “a transitional platform, sort of a guide, to allow people to begin relocating from the dense urban (sick) reality, into a nature inspired and focused community centric model of living, a creative haven.” The platform includes prototype holistic living models, structures, homesteads and communities that are self-regenerative, and fully supporting and integrative into natural settings. Paul has gained special attention recently for his hemp houses, which make use of the abundant and inexpensive natural resource, now so plentiful in the US.

In this glorious Our Bright Future conversation with Paul, we plan to cover new earth home building (specifically his amazing journey with hemp), integrating dwellings with surrounding land, rethinking community design in order to more abundantly access resources & much more.
