Peter Vetsch is a Switzerland based architect who is building Earth Homes since the year of 1974 (!) and during that time he has built 47 earth homes so far, and there are more to come. I am quite happy to see Earth Homes grow in Europe, too and I do also love the architecture and the philosophy about it, which is best descibed by a quote from their website :" The curvy forms of the earth-houses are an ideal synthesis between form and function. The emotional archaic form is an hommage to the natural environment. Planning should be centered around mankind, making the house his 3rd skin in context with nature. " We could totally agree with that I guess.
