I want to live in an Earthship

Uniquely designed, self-sustaining, and made of recycled or natural materials, these homes are the brainchild of renegade bioarchitect Michael Reynolds. Based in New Mexico, his goal is to create self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. He uses discarded modern by-products found locally, and integrates them into construction materials that can be used to build a sustainable home.

Earth house

Earth Houses | From an energy generation standpoint, all of the standard sustainable solutions are also available: geothermal, water, solar and wind. Moreover, there is an underlying visual theory that informs these shapes as much as these functional requirements – they are intended to mimic the naturally abstract and seemingly random curves of their natural surroundings. The design philosophy carries all the way from construction methods to the aesthetic appearance of the final product

Gorgeous!
