"This is a group photo of the mission trip 10 members of my church and I took part of this past July. We work with a small, poverty-stricken community in Pachacamac, Peru (just south of Lima). There are hundreds of children there and we spend 2-3 weeks doing various construction projects, Vacation Bible School, and community outreach, making sure everyone in the community is taken care of. We have used other companies in the past, but this year for our team t-shirts and sweatshirts, I am glad I chose to use CustomInk. The products we recieved were exactly what we wanted and it just made our group that much more unified!" - - MissionPeru6 (Aug 17, 2009)

These look great. For a mission trip the color is the best. They won't show the dirt as much as lighter colors. This is a wonderful cause.

In my opinion, this is eaxctly where I think architecture should be headed. Not just in terms of going green, or environmentalism. I mean, besides the green aspect of doing these sort of integrated architectural works there is also a pleasing aesthetic to it. Almost to divine state where you see the perfect harmony between man and nature, a sort of synergy. That's what I think we ought to be doing. It goes beyond architecture. Look at from a broader perspective, and we should be able to ask: "what other living organism tries to remove themselves from nature?" Shelter is one thing, that is to protect oneself from harsh, unbearable natural conditions, but exile is another thing. It seems that man has exiled himself from the forest, the jungle, and the wilderness. I fact, in many situations we are even cutting down forests to make room for our sprawling suburbs and exurbs. So it seems now that man is even in conflict with the natural Earthen environment.It should not be this way. Even with technology, or without technology, we should consider the conveniences of proximity to natural water sources and natural food sources. We should look away from the seperation of man and nature. In fact, we should in a way rethink the whole idea of green architecture, which is currently in state of making existing structures more "green" (which has somewhat so far been nothing more than a gimmick), or this sort of developmental after-thought in the sense that we see skyscrapers still going up today, where they just plop some greenery, a lawn or so, on the top of it, and then there's this sort of "voile0," and then the architect has the audacity to boast of green architecture. FYI: A green roof on a skysraper is hardly green architecture. What we should be looking forward to is the integration of the Earth and the built environment.Just to make a point, you can imagine that in the future, we will be building office buildings that run a thousand feet deep underground, leaving the skies un-scraped.
