The Most Versatile and Economical building design in the world.
An Earthship is a radically sustainable building made of recycled materials.

An Earthship is defined by the following 6 principles:

- Thermal/Solar Heating & Cooling
- Solar & Wind Electricity
- Contained Sewage Treatment
- Built with Natural & Recycled Materials

An Earthship is a new kind of building, a new kind of architecture. It is so new, we call it Biotecture. However, we have been doing this for over 40 years.

Earthships provide security in economically unsecure times.

 

Earthships cost about the same as a conventional home, but a conventional home does not come with all the electricity and water you will use. A conventional home is bad for the planet, is not strong and uses materials that require a lot of fossil fuels to manufacture and get to your building site.

Earthship "Build" Opportunities

Earthship “Builds” are opportunities to work side by side with our crew in locations all over the globe. Most builds will take an Earthship from to start to finish. Interns participating in these builds pay a registration fee and are responsible for their own accommodations, food and travel. Lunch is provided. Build Opportunities are posted on the front page of this site as they become available.

 

Earthship Intern Program

The Earthship Intern Program is a month long live/work/learn experience at our headquarters in Taos, New Mexico. Participants will live in an Earthship and work up to five days per week on Earthship projects in the Greater World Community.

Interns participating in this program pay a housing fee and are responsible for their own food and transportation. Those who complete the session will earn a certificate to attend an Earthship Seminar for free and may attend Academy classes at a discounted rate.

 

Earthship Biotecture Academy

The Earthship Biotecture Academy offers extensive training in Earthship design principles, construction methods and philosophy. Academy classes, labs, tours and hands-on construction techniques are led by Michael Reynolds and a staff of top Earthship builders, electricians, plumbers, plant specialists and educators. We are building an Earthship Army and the Academy offers education for those who are excited to learn and live the Earthship philosophy and help expand it globally. We will be offering 5 Academy sessions in 2014 in Taos, New Mexico.

Cash for Trash on National Geographic

Cash for Trash on National Geographic In more ways than we know, our lives are built on trash. If you stacked up all the world's old junkyard tires, they would reach to the moon and back. So what can we do with them all? How about building houses.  Invented by architect Michael Reynolds of Taos, New Mexico, Earthships are custom-built, off-the-grid houses built from recycled materials, like recycled bottles (pictured), aluminum cans, used tires,...Read More

Taos & The Greater World Community

Taos & The Greater World Community from go-van.com By Captn_Julz • Photos: Guillaume Beaudoin We’re producing too much trash on a daily basis, and we don’t recycle enough. We’ve already passed that point where waste management has become a problem, and not only for the Thirld World anymore.

Earthship 'biotecture' stays comfy without utilities TAOS, N.M. —from http://www.ksl.com/?nid=1012&sid=29474554 If you landed in the desert surrounding this north-central New Mexico town, you might at first think you had landed on another planet. In a sprawling development a few miles northwest of town, the architecture is so wild and futuristic that it could just as easily be a colonial outpost on the moon. Yet the homes are largely made of trash, and...Read More
