Anarchitecture by Richard Greaves

“La Cabande du Sucre”, built by Richard Greaves in Quebec.

“I don’t like concrete. A tree moves and also I’m silent. With a nail or a saw. you’d know I was there. I am like a raccoon” – Richard Greaves

Greaves makes inhabitable structures out of garbage that look pretty impressive if not confusing. Having great difficulty in finding any website of his to link to, Greaves seems to fall into that ‘isolated mad artist’ trope. It’s a genre I have to say I admire.

Trespassing Hotel California

We heard a rumour that there was an abandoned 1930s hot springs resort hotel on the road to San Francisco, that may or may not still be there. Of course I had to go see for myself. We pulled up to t...
