Rachel Preston Prinz defies easy definition; she is an architectural historian, a designer, a writer, a film producer and a compassionate advocate for making the world a better place.

Rachel believes that the built environment surrounding us plays an integral part in the formation of our lives. Her work investigates traditional and modern approaches to architecture, agriculture, culture, and landscape to address how we might not only survive, but also thrive, and to do so, sustainably.
For our Art+Tea conversation, Rachel took us into the earth of an ancient underground dwelling called a ‘pit-house’. These simple and efficient homes found throughout the southwest were built and inhabited by native americans who lived here almost a thousand years ago.
Check out the Art+Tea website for photos including some of our tea party with Rachel. The site also features links on how to follow this podcast – and best of all, David’s recipe and tips.
