For this week’s Photosynthesis, guest contributor and CU Journalism MA candidate Nicolene Durham shares photographs of Boulder’s only earthship. Earthships are the pinnacle of sustainable design. They utilize passive solar heating, capture rainwater, and are constructed entirely of natural and recycled materials.
Nika also recently published an article on earthships in The Elephant Journal. Read it here.
The Boulder Stand’s Emilie Bierschenk and April Nowicki also produced a short news piece on sustainable construction and earthships, visible here on Photosynthesis.
The next Photosynthesis contest will be announced in January. To our fellow CU students and contributors, happy winter break!
