Innovative & pioneering, his goal-driven biotectural design is changing the world. With a deep grasp on the human aspect in architecture and living styles, architect Michael Reynolds shares his thoughts, and how his now well-known Earthships emerged over the years. He also speaks of our humaness, and the communities he continues to develop in New Mexico. Homes that are totally self-sufficient and take care of their owners, the Earthship design, as you most certainly will see to some degree in this series, embraces the human spirit.
This is part 1 of 4: a re-edit of an hour-long TV production for public access TV. This interview was taped in 2003, and I'm more than pleased to finally present it in it's entirity on the web; Youtube limits length of videos, hence the necessary re-edit. I trust you'll watch all 4 parts; Michael Reynolds gives us much food for thought, but better than that: food for action!
You will find more information on Earthships at www.earthship.org. Thanks to the office for additional photos.
I hope to post the remainder of this series by the 1st of August, 2011!
