The images above show the former Osaka Stadium in Japan around 1998-1999. Prior to this, it was the home of the Nankai Hawks baseball team until the owner sold it to the Daiei Group and the team was moved to Fukoka City. After the sale, the stadium was abandoned and purchased by a property development company that used the space as a model home showroom. Eventually the stadium was demolished and a shopping center now resides where a stadium and former showroom once presided.
The yurt compound of William Coperthwaite on the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine.
No one alive has done more to promote yurts than Bill Coperthwaite. Coming across the style in a 1962 National Geographic article, he recognized in the yurt a construction method so simple and durable, that almost anyone, regardless of skill or budget, could build their own home. He’s spent the last 4 decades living off-grid, lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of yurt building workshops around the globe.
