Open House Saturday September 10, 2011
On our travels this weekend we found a very unique place. Cal-Earth, unfortunately I was not able to go inside. But it looks interesting. This coming weekend they are hosting an open house for everyone to come and see their facility. If you are in the area or are driving by, I suggest you stop by. I think it may surprise you. If you go, please post a comment.
You may see more pictures on their website to give a better look at their facility.

What We Do"Located in the Mojave Desert, Cal-Earth is at the cutting edge of Earth and Ceramic Architecture technologies today. Its scope spans technical innovations published by NASA for lunar and Martian construction, to housing design and development for the world’s homeless for the United Nations. It began as the “project” of the Geltaftan Foundation and quickly became a self-sustaining entity, which merged into a single public nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Cal-Earth, Inc.
The founding philosophy is the equilibrium of the natural elements of earth, water, air, and fire and their unity at the service of the arts and humanity. The Cal-Earth project has transformed this philosophy through hands-on research into sustainable earth architecture through building and testing life-size prototypes, and by educating the public in environmental arts, architecture, and awareness."
