Yes it's that time again, Earth Hour is on this Saturday the 28th March. Since Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007 the message has swept the globe. 50 million people switched off last year, the goal for 2009 is 1 billion!

bricks + cartwheels is an Australian based non government organisation that
works to provide an opportunity for people and communities to directly influence their own built environment.
As architects we seek to act as
facilitators to empower and engage communities not normally served by good design.
We believe in the potential for young designers to play a critical role in the built environment and the improvement of peoples’ lives.
bricks + cartwheels is currently working with the community of Katolo, Kenya to implement the design and construction of a new secondary school for girls.
