Michael Reynolds: Earthships

If you haven’t noticed lately, housing has become unaffordable at about the same time in America that our environment has become dirtier and unhealthy. How do we move forward as a society with these very formidable obstacles standing in our way?

Architect Michael Reynolds shares how he has perfected the Earthship concept that uses natural and repurposed materials to build ecologically sustainable dwellings to make the world a safer and nicer place in this very homey Living 4D conversation.
