About this book

Architecture is undergoing rapid change as the issues of climate change and cutting carbon emissions in buildings become more and more widely understood. The earthship is a building concept that has evolved over the last 30 years, and represents a pioneering form of zero carbon residential building that tackles a variety of sustainability issues. This book charts the building of the first earthships in the UK and their relevance to home building and architecture generally.
