|Geodesic Earthworks is the start-up company developing the
Geodesic Earthworks Kit,
a novel, PATENTED (custom shell) construction technology that could be the:
most sustainable, most ecological, most economical, most maintenance-free,
most non-toxic, most energy-efficient and greenest means of enclosing space for
comfortable human habitation yet devised!
The Geodesic Earthworks Kit answers the need of our time by applying the
available technology to greatest advantage, as you can read about in these pages!
According to the US Green Building Council, energy-efficiency is currently the
prime motivator in going "green" : Statistics suggest the U.S., with 5% of the
world's population, utilizes 25% of the world's energy. As much as 40% of this
energy is consumed by America's homes for heating and cooling, etc.
If these statistics are correct, a paradigm shift,
a design science revolution resulting in affordable, energy-efficient/(potentially)
energy- exporting residential housing is not just desirable, it is imperative!
“There is no emergence without emergency!”
–R. Buckminster Fuller
(It appears we've got our emergency!)
"Necessity... is the mother of invention." -Plato, The Republic
"Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come."
We are at the doorstep of an emerging new construction paradigm
...and we're going to call it "home"!!

*A Sustainable building, or Green building is an outcome of a design which focuses on increasing the
efficiency of resource use — energy, water, and materials — while reducing building impacts on human
health and the environment during the building's lifecycle, through better siting, design, construction,
operation, maintenance, and removal.
Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health
and the natural environment by:
Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources
Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
A similar concept is natural building, which is usually on a smaller scale and tends to focus on the use of
natural materials that are available locally. Other commonly used terms include sustainable design
and green architecture. Source: Wikipedia

In this brief video we discuss the novel Geodesic Earthworks construction technology! We haven't
corrected the exterior appearance as yet. The earth-sheltered exterior will NOT look like this. Stay tuned! :)
