First Urban Earthship: The Epitome of Sustainable Design & Construction
Earthship Biotecture to introduce sustainable homes for urban cities. Earthship Biotecture, a company that specializes in construction and design Earthships, was founded by Reynolds, who wanted to build a house that could accomplish three things - the use of recycled materials and other components that are abundant in the planet depend entirely on natural energy sources for electricity, water and food, and, finally, be constructed by anyone without the need for previous construction skills.
We saw houses made of wood and concrete, but a house built entirely of natural and recycled materials is quite different. This house was built by Michael Reynolds, remains a self-sustaining by using natural and recycled materials, it also has the ability to produce their own electricity, water and food.
These objectives appear to have been made on single U-shaped houses made from old tires and other debris. Over time, houses have become what is now known as Earthships. It is made with different purposes and different conceptions of sport.
After seeing the success of Earthships in open spaces throughout Europe and the United States, Reynolds now wants to bring his brilliant concept of urban cities. Your next step is to bring the project to the polluted city of Philadelphia. Because the houses are built with recycled materials and organic, which can promote the concept of sustainable development in cities.
As Earthships are also provisions for self-generated, including electric utilities and food, the company is positive that he will succeed with the poorest sectors of society. Another advantage is that the houses can be made by any person, creating an unlimited number of employment opportunities for the unemployed in urban areas to increase the city's economy.
Sustainable homes are not new, but the Reynolds Earthship project stands out because it requires no construction skills. We especially like the fact that a solution can be used as housing for the poor.
