In September 2017, Hurricane Maria caused catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis on the island of Puerto Rico.
Since then, Biotecture Planet Earth has been busy trying to find ways of sending a team to Puerto Rico to do a demonstration project of a sustainable and hurricane resistant Earthship.
Earthships create self-reliance and independence by integrating six basic principles and the aim is to train locals in Puerto Rico to be able to build these houses themselves and in a cost-effective way.
Project Proposal and timeline:
Send a small team to Puerto Rico for a week-long demonstration project to build a hurricane resistant Earthship to be used as shelter. Picture below.
Timing: February 1 – 6 2018
After documenting the situation and raising funds for the second round, we will return and integrate all systems and finish the build. Drawings below.
