PULLMAN, Wash. — Internationally recognized architect Phil Hawes has planned a public talk Monday, April 6, on the Washington State University campus. His presentation, “Organic Architecture and Construction,” is set for 7-9 p.m. in Room 102 of Carpenter Hall.
Hawes, architect of Biosphere 2 in Oracle, Ariz., will spend next week on the Pullman campus helping design a straw bale structure with students in WSU faculty member Michael Owen’s class.
Hawes has a long and varied professional career that has taken him to many areas in the world. He has been shipwrecked in Western Samoa for nine months and walked alone for four months across 500 miles of uninhabited western Australia wilderness.


Editor’s Note: During the week, Hawes will work with 18 students and Professor Owen to design and later build a straw bale structure to house an information kiosk for WSU’s Tukey Fruit Orchard near the Pullman-Moscow Airport. To arrange an interview with Hawes, call Professor Owen, 335-2648.
