      The film What do beer cans, car tires and water bottles have in common? Not much unless you're renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case they are tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent housing. For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of "Earthship Biotecture" by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. However, these experimental structures that defy state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities, who are backed by big business. Frustrated by antiquated legislation, Reynolds lobbies for the right to create a sustainable living test site. While politicians hum and ha, Mother Nature strikes, leaving communities devastated by tsunamis and hurricanes. Reynolds and his crew seize the opportunity to lend their pioneering skills to those who need it most. Shot over three years and in four countries, Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century. Earthship n. 1. passive solar home made of natural and recycled materials 2. thermal mass construction for temperature stabilization. 3. renewable energy & integrated water systems make the Earthship an off-grid home with little to no utility bills. Biotecture n. 1. the profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their sustainability. 2. A combination of biology and architecture. source: http://www.garbagewarrior.com/about.html

          Michael Reynolds, Earthship founder, talks us through the design of the CERES Chookshop - a Chook house made in the style of an Earthship - that is planned to be built at CERES (hopefully) some time in 2011. An Earthship is a type of passive solar house made of natural and recycled materials. Earthships are generally off-the-grid homes, minimizing their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. CERES is located in Brunswick, Melbourne, Australia. See http://ceres.org.au/ and the Earthship Australia website http://www.earthship.net.au/ for more information.

            Michael Reynolds, un architetto americano sensibile ai problemi ecologici degli ultimi decenni, ha dedicato la propria vita allo studio e alla sperimentazione di abitazioni totalmente sostenibili costruite con materiali di scarto come bottiglie, pneumatici e lattine. Partendo dal New Mexico prosegue la propria sperimentazione in altri luoghi del pianeta, tentando, contemporaneamente di far approvare una legge che consenta di costruire questo tipo di abitazioni, dovrá fare i conti con la politica e la burocrazia che ostacoleranno in ogni modo il suo progetto di legge...
