The new edition of this successful book is a detailed description and evaluation of earthships in Europe. Its main purpose is to judge whether the translation of earthships – an American architectural concept pioneered in the New Mexico desert – to a European setting has been successful.

The book includes case studies of people who have built earthships in France, Spain and Britain and a round-up of other projects. It also includes analysis of the most detailed thermal monitoring ever carried out on an earthship and the only ever known airtightness test. This analysis is used to make a series of design recommendations to help make earthships more effective in different climactic conditions.

The book concludes by predicting the likely future of earthships in Europe – whether they will become a model for large-scale low-carbon housing or remain the preserve of a few brave self-builders.
