“Isao had never felt that he might want to be a woman. He had never wished for anything else but to be a man, live in a manly way, die a manly death. To be thus a man was to give constant proof of one’s manliness–to be more a man today than yesterday, more a man tomorrow than today. To be a man was to forge ever upward toward the peak of manhood, there to die amid the white snows of that peak.”

The Eco-Dome film shows how a pile of earth, dug out from the building site, is turned into a small house called Eco-Dome (moon cocoon model), using the Superadobe technology.

It documents how professionals and students from many countries training at Cal-Earth Institute built this structure. It is intended for use with materials and tools developed for inspection during the hands-on apprenticeship course at Cal-Earth.

Superadobe technology was first presented by the architect to NASA for lunar habitats, and can build single or clustered homes here on earth which are resitant to fire, floods, wind storms and earthquakes.

“It is a hidden treasure,” said the director of Emergency Response Division at the U.N. Development Program .... Here you have a technology that's so simple, so effective and can be used by everybody ...” - Reuters World News Agency
