American architect Michael Reynolds, founder of the ‘Earthship’ movement is visiting Christchurch to offer innovative ideas for Christchurch’s rebuilding process.
“Mother nature’s recent behaviour is changing and traditional ‘built cheap and fast’ commodity-housing clearly is not coping. Here we have a housing solution that doesn’t just cope, it loves nature.” says Reynolds, who will be delivering a series of public talks and workshops about ‘Earthships’ – modern off-grid houses made out of cans, bottles and tyres, as well as conventional materials.
Over 6 days in Christchurch this March, Michael Reynolds will bring his 40 years of Sustainable Architecture experience to the table to present alternative structural designs to Christchurch residents.
His trip will include a 3 day practical workshop, 3 evening seminars, a lecture for architecture students, an onsite retrofit talk in North Canterbury as well as other meetings with organizations.

Earthships: Sustainable “Off-Grid” Homes Made of Recycled Materials
What: The acclaimed Earthship Biotecture Multimedia Seminar and Q&A will be in Philadelphia on March 9, 2011. It will cover all aspects of Earthship Biotecture, the international sustainable “off-grid” housing concept that incorporates recycled materials into “groundbreaking” housing structures.
The keynote speaker who kicked off this year’s Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) was Michael Reynolds, founder of Earthship Biotecture, and also known as “The Garbage Warrior”. Why, you ask, was the Garbage Warrior speaking at a sustainable farming conference? Others at the conference wondered the same – until Michael said this: “Independent of shifts from outside forces (the economy, the availability of petroleum-based materials and fuel, etc.) We want to ensure that individuals can continue to draw sustenance of life from the Earth”. Sounds like what farmers do doesn’t it?
