Climate Resilience in Architecture

In the destructive wake of the Woolsey fire, a group of Malibu Architects are exploring new building techniques and materials which better resist and respond to the ever-present threat of California wildfires. In a recent Hollywood Reporter article by Alexandria Abramian, David, as well as other architects and designers that have been directly affected by wildfires discuss a more resilient approach to architecture.

The Power of Purpose

Forbes recently stopped by SEA’s office to speak with David and Laura about their work and water equity. In addition to WEDEW technology, SEA provides water to passersby at our bottle filling station and contributes water to organizations like Community Healing Gardens. Read more about it here.

Laura and David advocate for "conscious capitalism"

During the Purpose x Profit Conference at NeueHouse Hollywood, Skysource founders Laura Doss and David Hertz spoke about the need to shift the global marketplace towards an ethical economic model. SEA has long advocated for regenerative design and sustainable architecture in the built environment, and innovative individual-empowering technologies like WEDEW will help generate long term value for people and the planet. #pxpconference

Adapt and Rebuild: In the Hills of Malibu

David and Laura were fortunate enough to have remained safe during the destructive Woolsey Fire, and are thankful that they can say the same of their ranch, Xanabu. This was not the case for everyone in the hills of Malibu, and during the height of the blaze everyone living and working at Xanabu did what they could to provide aid to those in need and will continue to do so as long as help is needed. The time has now come to gather together and rebuild what was lost, and adapt as a community to the ever present threat of California wildfires.
