“The majority of hands on building will occur at the new Picuris Earthship shown in the picture below. This Global design is the highest performing Earthship and utilizes the newest components and techniques. The tires are currently finished and the bond beam is formed. It is ready to be roofed by our students.
The Eve project is set to continue and we are excited to seal up the 30 foot tall greenhouse. This house will provide future student housing and is pushing the limits of what can be done. The EVE project is part of our designated two acres of experimental architecture. The state of New Mexico has allowed us the freedom to try new techniques without the limits of standard construction.
The Towers addition is halfway finished and will be a solid training ground for those interested in learning finishes. This Global Earthship is located behind the visitor center and will be a demonstration house to promote the design.
The Greater World is building a greenhouse to promote food production and community. The building has a curving greenhouse and is attached to a tire cistern. This building will get roofed and sealed up with glass and double can sidewalls.
Our students work on an extremely wide variety of buildings unmatched anywhere on the planet. They receive a complete education through hands on building, tours, and classroom instruction.”
