I am always looking for inspiring examples of eco-buildings and one is Nant-y-Cwm - a Steiner Waldorf School in Pembrokeshire. One of their buildings is a low impact eco-build which has been studied by my colleague Peter Kraftl who has written on green architecture. Below are some of his photos of the building.

A good article about the building is: Kraftl, P. (2006) “Building an idea: The material construction of an ideal childhood”, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers. 31(4): 488-504.
