Earthship Biotecture


Earthship Design Principles: 1)Thermal/Solar Heating & Cooling 2)Solar & Wind Electricity 3)Contained Sewage Treatment 4)Building with Natural & Recycled Materials 5)Water Harvesting 6)Food Production

Earthship n. 1. passive solar home made of natural and recycled materials 2. thermal mass construction for temperature stabilization. 3. renewable energy & integrated water systems make the Earthship an off-grid home with little to no utility bills.

Biotecture n. 1. the profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their sustainability. 2. A combination of biology and architecture.
