Hailed as “the most versatile and economical sustainable green building design in the world,” Earthships are off-the-grid homes made of natural and recycled materials, equipped with many modern-day conveniences. This style of architecture utilizes thermal and solar heating and cooling, solar and wind electricity, contained sewage treatment, water harvesting, and even food production.
For a glimpse into this unique, alternative way of living, stop by the Visitor Center at Earthship Biotecture between 9am-5pm in the summer, and 10am-4pm in the fall and winter. Check out their website for more information on their gallery, tour options, ongoing construction projects, and training opportunities.
