Earthship in Brighton, England

Guess what? We’re hosting a great evening talk with Michael Reynolds, that world-leading sustainability pioneer of Earthship Biotecture, in Sydney on the 26th Feb. Do you want to come?

This community event is going to be a uniquely inspiring & informative evening of radical architecture, ideas and discussion about Earthship building and living. >> Book tickets here.

Ok Earthships: a building technique you may have heard about, using recycled tires and bottle walls, passive solar gain, no energy needed to heat or cool, etc. Yep, that one. The totally self-sufficient building thing. It’s been going 25 years as a active concept, and every step of the way has been fascinating.

Apart from the fact that Earthships are quite basically awesome, this is a chance to listen to and Q&A with a bloke who, perhaps more than any other architect of the last 25 years, has had an unprecedented influence on eco-architecture world-wide, and how we think about sustainability.

We’re inviting community and biotecture related crews to set up stalls as part of the event, so all in all it should be a corker of a night of knowledge, networking and downright interesting company that will leave you considering just what the boundaries of achievable sustainability are.

We’re really looking forward to it. We hope to see you there! >> Book tickets here.

Stacks more info on Earthships can be found at the Earthship Biotecture website.

    I would like to come, but I’m all the way in the states!
    Will there be a transcript for purchase, or online video?
    I am definitely interested as I’m going to be building my home underground and would love to know what he has to say. :D
