Classroom

MR-lectureEarthship Academy students spend half their time in the classroom and half on the work site.  Classes are held in the Academy Classroom at the EVE (Earthship Village Ecologies) Compound.  Classes are taught by experienced Earthship staff including top builders, plumbers, electricians, plant specialists and Earthship founder Michael Reynolds.

The Earthship Academy is an intense, immersive experience.  School is in session six days a week for the month duration of each session.  There is a group homework assignment during the session and a final exam at the end.

Classes are typically one and a half to two hours long.

About Earthship Biotecture

Earthship construction drawings are designed to meet standard building code requirements so you can get a permit no matter where you are. Earthship Biotecture is beyond LEED Architecture. Earthships are green buildings that meet standard building codes. EarthshipBiotecture is based on the work of principal architect, Michael Reynolds. (see: media resume)
