Stephen Pallrand | CarbonShack

Stephen Pallrand's background in construction, architecture, architectural history, painting, and set design has aided him in pulling together the diverse group of artists, craftsmen, architects and designers who work on the CarbonShack projects. His father was a scientist/educator and his mother an educator and patron of the arts. This exposure to art, science and education led him to realize that building in an environmentally conscious manner is unimportant if you do not communicate the need and educate the consumer, for there are no green buildings, only green users. Our understanding of the environment is changing radically and so is the fate of the earth based on our actions as a civilization. Art and architecture have always played a critical role in representing the knowledge and culture of a period and Pallrand's use of the CarbonShack projects is to transform our shelters, our homes, into vehicles of change.
