Walter Segal

Walter Segal (1907 – 1985) was an architect who developed a system of self-build housing. The Segal self-build method is based on traditional timber frame methods modified to use standard materials available today. It eliminates the need for wet trades such as bricklaying and plastering resulting in a light-weight method which can be built with minimal experience and are ecologically sound.
