The king of trash
Mike Reynolds is probably one of the sharpest, most innovative architects of the last few decades, but when he gave up his New Mexico license in 1990 because of legal disputes with disenchanted buyers of his homes, the dream of completely independent sustainable housing seemed to die. The documentary Garbage Warrior — which screens at community meeting spot Third Space (inside B-Bop Records) on Wednesday, September 19 — picks up 17 years later in 2007 when his architecture license was reinstated and he dove back into his experimental Earthship-style community: off-the-grid homes that don’t need utilities, are made with recycled materials and have water systems. 8-10pm.
