earthship grand central


EARTHSHIP GRAND CENTRAL is providing links to all Earthship Biotecture activities around the world.

The original true “Earthship” is a “machine” developed by Michael Reynolds. It is the result of forty- five years of research and development into the biology and physics of this planet as they relate to housing vessels that are designed to sustain human life here on earth a while longer.

The word “Earthship” is fast becoming synonymous with sustainable off grid housing all over the world and is being used as such in many efforts and attempts at sustainable housing. We are happy with this as it helps to point people in the direction of thinking that we think is appropriate for the future.

There are hundreds of Earthship enthusiasts (some of them are Earthship interns, apprentices and academy graduates) out in the world at this point. They have worked with Earthship Biotecture, studied, helped and gotten inspired. They are like an army of people wanting to make the world a better place. They are making efforts and attempts at pursuing the Earthship concepts around the world. Some of these efforts and attempts have been successful and some have been near disasters. Nevertheless, they are moving people into thinking in the right direction for us to have a future. Some of these efforts are worth recognizing as Earthship places of interest around the world. They are represented by orange flags on the global map below. This illustrates Earthship type activity and thinking around the world.

Actual Earthship Biotecture builds, events and academy sessions run by original and seasoned Earthship staff are represented by the green flags.

Concept Behind E.V.E.

Concept Behind E.V.E. RATIONALE: Throughout the last fifty years, Earthship Biotecture has been working toward developing a fully sustainable prototype home that has a zero carbon footprint on the planet. We arrived at this in the early 2000’s and are still perfecting and refining it. We have a building prototype that harvests its own electricity and water; contains and treats its own sewage; heats and cools itself without fuel and...Read More

Michael Reynolds addresses the Flint, MI water crisis

In this short clip Michael Reynolds talks about the Flint, MI water crisis.  He points out that in New Mexico, where we only get 8" of annual precipitation, we are able to build buildings that harvest, filter and use their own water four times.  Flint gets 40" of annual precipitation and it should be be relatively simple to design rainwater harvesting systems that would provide clean water to the residents.  He...Read More

TBT: Hut-Inspired Modular Earthship

TBT: Hut-Inspired Modular Earthship The Hut-Inspired Modular Earthship was built in 2005 and was designed for clients who stayed in the Hut Earthship when it was a nightly rental and loved the building so much that they wanted to build one like it.  The floor plan of the Hut consisted of two round tire rooms connected with a angled greenhouse containing the kitchen, bathroom and grey water planter.  One Hut room was the living room, one was the...Read More
