Up on a mountain overlooking a river

Perched on the sky

On a high rise

In the suburbs

With white picket fences

A brownstone with a stoop

A cabin in the woods

Or a cottage by the sea

On wheels or on top of a tree

An igloo , a cave or a spaceship

Whatever dwelling you choose to live in

Make it a happy, interesting and

Sustainable place to be in

Amazing, interesting and sustainable dwellings on Earth:

"A Futuro house, or Futuro Pod, is a round, prefabricated house designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, of which fewer than 100 were built during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The shape, reminiscent of a flying saucer, and the structure's airplane hatch entrance has made the houses sought after by collectors." - wikipedia

"Glittering like a giant emerald in a tranquil pond is Thailand’s most eco-friendly temple. Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew (Wilderness Temple of the Great Glass Pagoda), also known as the Temple of a Million Bottles, is a testament to a community coming together to reduce pollution. In 1984, Buddhist monks in Sisaket province in northeastern Thailand grew tired of the mounting litter in the countryside and began a “100 Beer Bottles on the Wall” challenge. Headmaster Phra Khru Vivek Dharmajahn led the movement to build a temple decorated with glass containers on a deserted burial ground in the local village. The monks encouraged residents and businesses to donate their used beverage containers. Soon, the challenge attracted more empty bottles, which were reincarnated to build the glass temple in a span of two years." - Architectural Digest

"The Casa de la Roca House celebrates each corner of its unique landscape. Hidden in the hills to the west of Mexico City, this rustic home has lookouts that offer rare views of the tropical forest it is surrounded by. Pieces of the forest compose the house – handpicked fallen trees are repurposed as beautiful beams, while the green roof absorbs rainwater, provides insulation, and creates a habitat for wildlife"-

eco Igloo home

"A couple made an eco igloo home made of cob and straw bale packed tightly together to build the walls and plastered over. This is a common eco build technique that has existed for thousands of years and has recently seen a revival in the technique in both North America and Europe."-
