Topic: Earthships & Sustainability as Scientific Method
Description: Earthships and Sustainability as Scientific Method is the firsthand account of a core Earthship builder and the discovery that “sustainability” is not only a method of home design, but also a philosophy and science to live by.
In this presentation, people will learn the inner workings of an Earthship home/structure from site selection to finish material choices, the trials and tribulations of alternative architecture planning, and the integral links between sustainable architecture and social wellbeing. Join the journey of an anthropologist turned dirt herder, turned tire pounder, turned (the first) Sustainologist, turned CEO of Terrassure Corporation.
