    56. 56. “There are more tires than trees on earth. Why not build with something we don’t need to survive?” - Mike Reynolds, The Newshour Show with Jim Lehrer, 2009<br />
    57. 57. 6 principles of an “Earthship”:<br />Water / Electricity / Sewage / Comfort / Food<br />
    58. 58. Incorporating the CONCEPT of the 6 principles into planning and design. Using second-use materials and heating/cooling with out fuel as much as possible.<br />Incorporating SOME of the METHODS of the Earthship into new design and/or retrofitting existing structures.<br />Incorporating ALL of the METHODS, ie. building an Earthship<br /> *one story, small , unattached structures<br /> *parks – pavilions, sheds, bleachers<br /> *residential homes, garages and sheds, extending into the suburbs<br />4. Use trash from areas where unable to build earthships to build in locations where earthsips are already being built . A sophisticated recycling + rerouting system would allow cities another way to engage in the effort of using less natural resources in addition to alternative building practices.<br />
    59. 59. Other considerations:<br /><ul><li>Codes + permitting -Higher quantity of materials</li></ul>-Legal system -More access to collection facilities<br />-LEED<br />-Regulation + testing<br />The Mass State Building Code allows for tire construction under the section for “Alternative Building”. Each code official has his/her own right to make their own interpretations and rulings about the code.<br />“Every state follows the same Uniform Building Code. This code has a clause that allows for alternative methods "not covered in this document." It states that alternative methods must meet requirements and standards of those presented in the UBC. Your objective would, therefore, be to illustrate that EarthshipBiotecture meets and exceeds the standards put forth in the UBC.” -earthship.net<br />-Quantity of materials<br />-Access to collection facilities<br />
