Steve Barron


Steve Barron, who directed seminal pop videos including Michael Jackson’s Billie-Jean, Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing and A-Ha’s Take On Me, used hemp from his fields to build his own house.

He embarked on the project to explore hemp’s potential both in the fight against climate change and as a high-performance, non-toxic construction material.

“The plan was to grow fibre hemp to sequester carbon from the atmosphere and use a fair amount of it to build the house,” Barron explained.
