Carol Venolia

Carol Venolia became curious about the best environments for human beings many years ago. "Whether I looked at optimal light, sound, color, vista, heating, or cooling, the same pattern emerged: We thrive when we experience the rich textures of the living world and the natural elements. The problem is that buildings usually cut us off from that lush, pulsing world. But it turns out we are not trapped. In my quest to understand how to have the best of nature and indoor living, I became an architect and spent over twenty years designing homes that nurture people and the planet via natural lighting, heating, and cooling and the joys of garden rooms." She has also brought her insights to a wider audience by writing books and a column in Natural Home & Garden Magazine for over 9 years, giving lectures and workshops across North America; and heading up a college program in Ecodwelling. "Through these activities, I've learned a lot about people's hunger for nature."
