Tony Shuterland Gwilliam - The Author

The author. Tony Sutherland Gwilliam, Born in 1938 in Nottingham, UK. and qualified as an architect from Nottingham School of Architecture, taught at the Architectural Association London. Travelled and worked around the planet. Studied and worked with R. Buckminster Fuller. Presently living in Bloo Lagoon in Bali and Carpinteria, California.

Being asked countless times where did Bloo Lagoon Village come from led me to try to make sense of my personal journey, planetary ecology and my relationship to Universe.

The story begins with the beginnings of time and travels through my childhood war years, the Festival of Britain in 1951, architectural education, and the discovery of three dimensional geometry, travels to the USA to join Buckminster Fuller and to Mexico to work on school building. A lecture tour in Australia and inflatable structures, returning overland from Australia to London where I again taught at the Architectural Association and created Mantainer a suitcase for living. Then after falling in love taking a trip to China back to the USA to work with Bucky on the Now House and Dwelling Design Network. In Ojai I founded Tensegrity International and T House, and returned to Bali to build the Bloo Lagoon Regenerative Village. It is a personal story, illustrated with many drawings and snapshots of the places, friends and events that contributed. It is a work of art resembling a book, and is created to be handled, perused and enjoyed.
