Earthship Biotecture – self sustaining homes by Mike Reynolds


Inline image 2Renegade architect Michael Reynolds, creator of radically sustainable homes. These homes:

  • grow their own food
  • harvest and use their own water
  • control their temperature even in extreme heat and cold
  • process and re-utilize all their waste and sewage
  • generate their own power
  • need no power lines or water pipes going in, and have no sewage going out.
  • are made from locally sourced materials including thrown-away tyres, bottles, tin cans.

In Taos, New Mexico, USA, Reynolds gives a tour of one of the sustainable-living homes he created in this 14-min video.

There is a documentary “Garbage Warrior” on his work, you can (hopefully) see the full-length film here.
