We will be covering natural building construction combining Eco Architecture and Biotecture principles such as Adobe, Bamboo, Cob, Cordwood, Dome Construction, Earthbag, Earthships, Papercrete, Straw Bale, and whatever else we come across in our pursuit to building our own sustainable structures for our Middle Earth Home Project.
Eco architecture stands for life affirming homes that are healthful, using sustainable and inert materials good for humans and good for Mother Nature. We go so far as to explore recycling in creative ways re-using objects that otherwise would grace our landfills.
Eco does not stand for the economy. Economics have made a mockery of building healthy and sustainable homes for humans and the natural world around them long enough.
1. The profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their sustainability.
2. A combination of biology and architecture.
Through ‘Biotecture’ we will be exploring alternative architecture and building techniques for their pros and cons as they relate to sustainability and the natural world.
We won’t be promoting any one structure over the others as that depends on your environment and your needs, as to what pros and cons matter most to you. The only mud slinging that will take place around here will be of a cob nature or throwing plaster on the wall.
