Product Overview

A manifesto filmed over four years and four continents, this proposal contends that earthen homesthose made from cob, straw, clay, adobe bricks, and rammed earthare the healthiest and best houses in the world. Also posing that suburban sprawl should be transformed into eco-villages, this discussion provides evidence of the benefits of this lifestyle in every cultural and socioeconomic context, from countrysides to urban jungles, third-world countries to tribal communities. Beautiful scenes of a myriad of culturescurving art-poem dwellings in the Pacific Northwest, thousand-year-old Pueblo architecture in New Mexico, centuries-old and contemporary cob homes in England, thatched huts in West Africa, and Moorish-style skyscrapers in Yemenmake this global trek a testament to both the spiritual and material benefits of building with the earth.
