Earthship Biotecture to introduce sustainable homes for urban cities - We’ve seen houses made of wood and concrete but a house constructed entirely out of natural and recycled materials is something else altogether. Such a home was built by Michael Reynolds, a self-sustainable abode that aside from using natural and recycled materials, also has the ability to generate its own power, water and food.
The Earthship is the epitome of sustainable design and construction. No part of sustainable living has been ignored in this ingenious building."
Sustainable Green Buildings | Earthship Biotecture. Green Buildings, Sustainable Architecture. Retrofit. Earthships are radically sustainable buildings made with earth from the site and recycled materials. Earthships can be built in any part of the world, in any climate and still provide solar power, catchwater, contained sewage treatment and sustainable food production.
Sustainable Green Building: the earth ship
Meet the extraordinary environmentalist and architect who is most famous for the “Earthship Biotecture”, an architectural building design that aims to create sustainable and eco-friendly homes to reduce stress and make living more comfortable and at the same time benefiting the environment, Michael “Mike” Reynolds. "If you walk the talk, you don’t have to talk that much." Mike Reynolds http://thextraordinary.org/mike-reynolds
Earthship. Still my ultimate dream home. Zero carbon foot print, completely sustainable, off-the-grid homes.
