Earthship Workshop i Stockholm med arkitekten Michael Reynolds
Michael Reynolds har 40 års erfarenhet av forskning, utveckling och byggnation av självförsörjande & energieffektiva bostäder
3 DAGARS WORKSHOP OM EKOLOGISK ARKITEKTUR, BYGGMETODER & TILLÄMPNING
Currently Earthship Biotecture is building a 3-U Survival Pod Earthship for Romeo Apen and his family alongside of Long Way Home. Here in Comalapa, Guatemala we have volunteers from all over the world on the job site. Involved in the build includes members of Earthship Biotecture Sweden who are here to learn about the building techniques in order to bring the concept back home.
residents in Burntisland are being asked for their views on a proposed forthcoming eco project in the town.
SCI at the Earthship (Sustainable Communities Initiatives) is in the process of applying to Fife Council for planning permission to develop an eco site on land in Burntisland known locally as the Widows Land.
As well as building 12 eco homes for people to rent as affordable housing, the development would focus heavily on enhancing the biodiversity of the site and surrounding woodland.
A writer should seize the imagination in the opening sentence. Well, how about "a retired fishing boat that has become a cottage", or "sleep in a sweet-smelling hayloft"? Irresistible. I want to be there immediately. If I still had young children I would haul them there in the full certainty that they would not want to leave. And I, of course, would be in intimate contact with my inner child, the one who once built elaborate dens in a similar hay loft.
These places are the stuff of dreams, from unique spots where an outdoor shower – screened by willows and beside a frothing stream – is the height of luxury, to the magic of a terrace in the treetops. Real luxury, rather than the ersatz, humdrum hotel-y kind, comes in all shapes and sizes.
Ever since I watched the first Pippi Longstocking movie I knew that I loved a house that is not normal.
She lives in a villa that in English is called 'Villa Villekulla', not just an awesome house on the outside, but just as fresh and authentic on the inside.
The furniture is unique, all with wonderfull playfull but natural -lovingly made - details, all made for actual using.
And the way that Pippi makes use of the house was great too; sliding down bannisters, climbing the roof, horse on the porch, monkey as companion.
Not only Scotland's first, but the first to be built in the UK, the construction of Earthship Fife Visitor Centre was begun in July 2002 during an intensive 8 day building programme with American Earthship pioneer Michael Reynolds and 11 trainees from across Scotland and England. From July 2002 to 2004 more than 200 volunteers completed the Earthship during weekends and work experience days.
Overlooking Kinghorn Loch, this centre shares a site with Craigencalt Ecology Centre and is built back into the hillside. Although the building is being used as a demonstration, full housing standards were applied when going through the planning process, and Sustainable Communities Initiatives are running an on-going monitoring process to assess an Earthship's performance in Scotland's climate.
Unfortunately the building itself was closed on the only day I could visit, but there was plenty of activity in the grounds and gardens, as well as bright ideas on recycling - a subject dear to my heart!
