    I am a civil engineer and for the last seven years I’ve been working for the water and wastewater company of Brasília, brazilian capital. Besides works about producing drinking water saving energy and dealing with water tank levels, I am really interested into environmental buildings, mainly applying bamboo as raw material. Last yeat we built two bamboo houses. If I was invited to write posts for this website, it would be a great honor and oportunity to tell the world how people from Brazil is finding ways to face global challenges. Hey, I only read the Inhabitat Crew post now, just after chaking my head to make these lines come out ! No problem, life goes on, see you next time, thanks.

    I am from Mumbai, India, and I think that this metropolis needs a heavy dose of green Inhabitat. The city was a concrete jungle once upon a time and is now evolving into a concrete monster gobbling up all open and green spaces.

    I think that this metro could use a dose of Inhabitat, and as much I would like to contribute to your website, I think that it will be the other way round most of the time.

    I was once attached to a movement known as grow more trees and we went on a tree planting spree in the only open space left in Mumbai which is Sanjay Gandhi National Park, however, the attempt was aborted half ways for want of resources and cooperation.

    Also the person who had initiated it has left this world for a more heavenly abode, I am talking about Sidney D’Souza who was one of the pioneers in inspiring the movement.

    I think that Mumbai could use more Solar power generation equipment as we have ample space on our roof tops to install hi tech solar power generation equipment, and save some electricity cost along with saving some serious green house gas emissions.

    Coming back to contribution to your site, yes I would love to do so !!

    Dear Inhabitat

    First of all: congratulations on what I think is a brilliant website! I cannot contribute editorial as such, but have a suggestion. I am the editor of Built magazine, a South African b2b publication focusing on commercial architecture, construction, green industry/landscaping/town planning and interior design. Our readers are professionals within the respective industries. Should you wish to share editorial, suggestions, ideas and news, we can publish it and promote Inhabitat in SA. We are part of the Johncom group – one of the biggest media houses in the country.

    Let me know!

    Kind regards
    Paula Beezhold

    I think I wrote to you guys some time ago, but didn’t receive a response.

    I live in Tokyo working for a major architectural manafacturer and one of the world’s largert producers of PV. I have a very strong interest in green design, architecture, renewable energy. I am fluent in Japanese and English, so I would be a good source for info on that. PM me, not the forum, if you are interested.

    My current professional life as urban planner and project manager moves between Portugal and Cape Verde (Africa) trying to develop a few sustainable projects at both locations and am keen to start writing on this subject for you. I have published before in science and architecture/design magazines and have many ideas to communicate. Please inform on how to proceed.

    I am an interior desiner living in New Zealand, how would you like to hear about whats going this far down south?

  22. Gabriela Pallares February 12, 2007 at 2:26 pm

    Hello: I am architect from Montevideo , Uruguay (South America) and though here there´s not so many examples of green architecture around here (usually there´s the law that what is more eco friendly and has less maintenance costs, has usually more initial inversion, or need technologies or materials that are not developped in these areas, what clients not always understand or have the aim to follow). even though the major areas where is developped construction is Montevideo and the international seaside Punta del este, where I could find examples that fit your page and share with readers and colleagues, or find a way to fullfill your needs.
    My best regards to all the inhabitat community,
    Gabriela Pallares architect

    Hi everybody,

    I love to participate on writing for Right now I’m completing my degree in “Urban Planning” in Hamburg, Germany. As this page was quite informative and inspiring for me as a planner as well as an interested “future worker” like you, I’d love to give it back to you and to endorse it about urban themes.

  25. Jill February 12, 2007 at 10:30 am

    Hi guys-

    Australia, Portugal, Malaysia and Eastern Europe are all welcome locales, and again, you don’t need a writing background so long as you can write fairly well. To apply please send a resume and cover letter to the email address above.

    Thanks for your interest!

  26. Abigail February 12, 2007 at 9:02 am

    Do you need coverage in Italy and/or Eastern Europe. I live in NYC but I also live in these other locales part of the year. I am restoring a 13th century farmhouse in Tuscany that is green-design-friendly and historically intact – Do let me know!

  27. Alexandre Chan February 12, 2007 at 8:53 am

    I am editor for a online magazine (India school news ) , of Vadamalai Media Group, Bangalore INDIA. I am Mass Communication post graduate.. from Lucknow University, INdia. my e-mail add:

  31. Ana February 12, 2007 at 6:21 am

    I’m and architect in Brazil and very interested in green design (which is pretty difficult to find around here, by the way… unfortunatly)… I love to write but I don’t have a writing background… Are you interested in this kind of resume? ;o)

  32. Kirsten Alexander February 12, 2007 at 5:50 am

    Hi. I didn’t see Australia on your list but hope you might be interested in stories from here too. I write a weekly gardening column for a local newspaper as well as occasional pieces for the city broadsheet (The Age). I also work as a freelance nonfiction book editor (having worked inhouse as an editor for seven years). I’ve been a content manager and writer for a now defunct lifestlye website (back when they were called portals), and a magazine and website subeditor (including Aust Home Beautiful). All small fry for you I know, and from half a world away…

    But there are some very interesting green projects happening in Melbourne. Despite the best efforts of our government Australians have a keen and creative interest in finding a new way to live. There are many stunning residential and industrial buildings that I think would be of interest to you. If not, maybe you’d like to have a contact here who can follow up things you’ve heard about. I’m happy to initiate stories or to write to a brief.

    If you’d like to see copies of my work or need further information please contact me. I’d love to write for you.

    Kind regards,

    Kirsten Alexander

  33. christie February 12, 2007 at 5:22 am

    most definitely interested. south africa currently has some very good examples of passive climate and sustainable design. and growing. building industry still fully based on “wet” construction rather than prefab, but here it’s the most sutainable method. anyway….i’ll send you guys my details. thanx for the opportunity!

  34. Emily February 12, 2007 at 3:42 am


    Yes, we do pay a per-post rate that won’t make you rich, but is very competitive within the blogging world. Beyond that, and maybe more importantly, you’ll get “great experiences and networking opportunities in the world of green design, and good karma for life.” Hope to hear from you.


  35. rachel February 12, 2007 at 2:23 am

    Out of curiosity, is this a paid gig?


  36. Jill February 11, 2007 at 10:58 pm

    Hey Zana-

    You don’t need to have a writing background as long as you know a bit about the green design space and can write well. Writing samples would help us assess this. You do need to enjoy writing, as this is the bulk of what we do.


  37. Emily February 11, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    Zana- you don’t need a comprehensive writing background, necessarily, if you’re involved in green design and know how to write coherently/creatively. A lot of our writers are working designers or architects who are deeply involved in the industry and are also good writers. So please do send along your resume. Thanks!

  38. Zana February 11, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Love to, but if you were to ask for my resume, you would see that I am not from any writing background :(

    I’m from Malaysia by the way.

  39. Victoria E February 11, 2007 at 7:35 pm

    I’d love to write for the site, but I can’t offer any “foreign” locations – I’m in San Francisco :/

  40. Emily February 11, 2007 at 7:27 pm

    Sure! If you’re a great writer who’s plugged into the green design world, we’d love to hear from you… send us your resume/cover letter- Thanks!

  41. *Terramia* February 11, 2007 at 7:16 pm

    How about Canada? (:
