Building with Hemp has been an inspiration for architects, builders, community activists, students and teachers around the world and as this construction system is gaining in popularity this edition will be even more important in assisting the uptake of this technology internationally.

Steve Allin is an author, teacher and consultant on ecological building. He has enthusiastically pioneered the use of hemp in building in Ireland and internationally for many years. He has also contributed articles to a variety of publications from the Green Building Bible to Cannabis Culture magazine. The founding director of the International Hemp Building Association, IHBA, he continues to teach and lecture worldwide on the subject of hemp building.Review:
"If you're planning to build an eco-friendly house, you will certainly come across hemp as a construction material. The benefits are many, and the book goes through all of them.
Allin's interest lies in the fact that there are still many people around the world coming up with new and imaginative ways of using hemp in every climate and all weather conditions. His aim, therefore, is not to provide a manual, but to inspire. Still, he certainly shows how feasible it is!"
