Back to the Land: Eco-nuts Plan Treehouse v2.0

In Joachim's vision, the exterior of the living house is shaped over the course of several decades into a protective crisscross of vines, interspersed with soil pockets and growing plants. A clay and straw composite fills in the gaps to insulate against the cold and heat and keep out moisture....

Water would be gathered in a roof-top trough and circulate by gravity through the house, where it would be used by the inhabitants, filtered through a garden, and purified in a pond containing bacteria, fish, and plants that consume organic waste.

It wouldn't be a proper house of the future if it wasn't a freakin dome would it?
I think it would be easier to just dig a hole and cover it up with some sticks.

They already have those. They're called caves.

So? All of the houses where I live are made from trees.

So he wants us to live in a hollow dirt wad, covered by plants, using water from a septic pond full of catfish and carp?

Um. The house takes decades to construct? So the first generation basically lives in total squalor while the lovely pond ecosystem establishes itself? Gee, by the time the grandchildren are grown, the house might be done! Nice post-apocalyptic fantasy
