Earthships, New Mexico

Stacked up in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains near Taos, New Mexico, is a community of “Earthship” houses, a pioneer of the R.E.A.C.H. (Rural Earthship Alternative Community Habitat) concept. Earthships incorporate walls made of discarded vehicle tyres, rammed earth and concrete, systems for recycling water and waste, solar technology, and a design that reflects the local adobe vernacular. Designed by architect Michael Reynolds (who lives in the one at the top), they are almost entirely self-sufficient in energy.
