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 finding ways of supporting a demonstration project of a sustainable and hurricane resistant Earthship in Puerto Rico, with no government or corporate support.

Puerto Rico earthship

We have now completed five phases of this ongoing project of constructing five Earthship structures with over 250 international and local volunteers. This project is only possible because of the donations and support of a large amount of individuals and organizations. Thank you!

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. Earthships have been built on an international basis for over 45 years by Earthship Biotecture, making the organization a pioneer in the world of self-sustainable home construction.
