Community building

Joep's greenhouse oven

Last week I’ve got a brainstorm session about the future of architecture…One of my conclusions was that now it’s time for building up human relations instead of brick sculptures. People instead of cement!

The nice thing about our pizza project is that we try to get abstract concepts done. And the nicest thing is that it actually works!

Today I’ve got some news from my uncle Joep  and his family (Dory, Hans, Leo, Sanne and Jesse). They’re following my project since the beginning…always supporting, commenting and of course eating my pizzas!

One day the family decided to build their own pizza oven. I gave them some tips and info and they managed to build a mobile oven in their garden. But it didn’t stop there…now they are inventing and developing the art of building and cooking…yesterday they send me this picture…Joep’s  greenhouse solution to protect the oven against the rain and cold! WOOOOWWW…Much better then my own ideas I have to confess!

More then the technical solutions from uncle, the fact that the family is becoming as crazy as me about pizza ovens enjoys me the most…they are believing in the same values that made me do this project in the first place! We are part of the same community…doing the things we like, sharing the ideas with others and enjoying the results as they are!YEAH!!!

Wanna join too?

We, the oven builders

manual Victor Lotufo pg2

Last week I received an e-mail with questions and doubts about building pizza ovens. I have to say it was not the first e-mail and I believe it will not be the last. The nice thing was that in the same week I saw the manual I’ve used to build my first pizza oven on facebook! It was written by my professor Victor Lotufo and it explains quite easily how to build an earth oven! I was so happy to see that, that I decided to make my own manual “How to build an oven in 10 steps” ( you can find it at the page “oven” at my website)(click here)

Friends and clients told me not to do it…they say I’m crazy reveling all my secrets, and that I was going to loose lot’s of jobs an opportunities by telling people how to build a pizza oven…but I don’t agree.

I believe  in people more then bricks…so why should I keep bricks information for myself instead of making people happy? My professor didn’t keep it to himself…and I will won’t do that eather!

YEAH for the pizza oven!

YEAH for we, the oven builders:)
