Earthship Biotecture
Based on the work of principal architect, Michael Reynolds, Earthship Biotecture is leading the way in radically sustainable buildings made from recycled materials.

(from their website)

The Most Versatile and Economical building design in the world, Earthships can be built in any part of the world, in any climate and still provide you with what you need to survive, with 'modern' amenities, if desired.

Earthships include their own utilities made on site. An Earthship uses little to no fossil fuels to provide modern amenities. We are simply adapting our needs to the already existing activities of the planet.

The condition of our planet tells us we must now begin to take responsibility for what happens beyond the reach of our fingertips. We must begin to reconsider the source of these utilities, our access to them, and how we dispose of the waste produced. The mechanical systems of the Earthship confront these issues directly. We call this direct living. Source, access and destination are all contained within the Earthship, within the reach of our fingertips. There is no mystery involved in Earthship electricity. There is no unknown source of water. There is no magical black hole that sucks up all our sewage. Instead, we work in harmony with the earth to deal with these issues - taking what it has to give us directly and giving back what it wants to receive. With this harmony ringing in our minds we evolve the Earthship Systems.
