Earth ship home; Texture! CURVE APPEAL Donald Jasinski says he finds the domed ceilings and rounded columns of his earth-sheltered house more congenial to the human body. In the living room, south-facing windows allow plenty of light to penetrate interior spaces.

earthbag construction - I helped a friend start the foundation of an earthbag home many years ago, but I had not seen the possibilities til I saw this series. Now I really want to do it. - RHill

Although not a true "Earthship," I love the combination of earth sheltered/off grid as well as beauty. Form + Function. Just because it is functional doesn't mean it has to be ugly!
This is a form works building. The structure of this facade is a steel framework that is sprayed with pressurized concrete. I like this design and really appreciate earth sheltered homes. You can see a lot more earth sheltered homes by clicking on the picture. There is more information about this design at formworksbuilding.com
Earth Shelter Homes - I don't like the idea of living underground... but I can see the virtues of doing so.
Earth Sheltered Homes "Another type of building is emerging: one that actually heals the scars of its own construction. It conserves rainwater and fuel and it provides a habitat for creatures other than the human one. Maybe it will catch on, maybe it won't. We'll see." - Malcolm Wells, 2002. http://www.inspirationgreen.com/earth-sheltered-homes.html
Earth Sheltered Home by Formworks. "Here the structure is a bolted together skeletal steel system which is then sprayed with pressurized concrete, same process as a gunite swimming pool" http://www.inspirationgreen.com/earth-sheltered-homes.html#sthash.qAzNyz8b.dpuf
But why they use concrete and steel for the facade I will never understand! ;) earth sheltered home

Houses in different parts of the World, This one is in a place calledCamroon. The mud houses of the Musgum people, Cameroon. earth-everyday-houses-around-the-world
Building a Musgum House in Cameroon. Musgum earth home, a traditional home of the Musgum people in Far North, Cameroon, Africa
Musgum Houses, Cameroon ~ On page July 26 in THE BOOK OF AWAKENING, Mark Nepo writes a metaphor about a South African clay house, but with a flat roof. He ends with a question: "How much of my pain comes from ripping up what I've over fastened on days I need to see the sky?"
The Musgum houses in Cameroon are made from compressed sun-dried mud. Their dome shape are very close to the catenary arch, the ideal mathematical form for maximum rigidity with a minimum of material. As well as being decorative, the raised pattern on the outside wall contribute to the drainage of rain and access to the top of the building for regular maintenance of the coating. VERY CLEVER !!!
"Building of a Mousgoum earth home, in the North of Cameroon. What we love about this picture is not the beautiful architecture only but the coming together of both men and women to achieve this task. Google Mousgoum houses to see the end visual of the building process, they are quite beautiful infrastructures. Notable is also the symmetry of the design and how perfectly aligned and how they balance on the design without the use of ladders."
The Catenary Arch. These are clay Obos (right) of the Musgum people in Pouss, Cameroon. They are designed in much the same way as the Turkish beehive homes (below) in Harran, to provide efficient cooling in the baking heat. Both are designed with vents at the top of the building and small entrances with few, if any, windows. The high domes collect the hot air, moving it away from people sleeping at the bottom of the house keeping the interior around 75F (24C).

Hill house construction
"Underhill", near Holmfirth, Yorkshire, UK. 'The first “modern” earth-sheltered house in Britain and the home of its architect Arthur Quarmby, a pioneer of earth-sheltered buildings. The house features earth embankments, turf roof, lots of insulation and a visual impact that not even the pickiest of neighbors could fault.' martinbondphotos....

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. I would love to live in hobbit hole!
