After the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, CalEarth was invited on a research trip to design a temporary housing alternative for those who lost their homes. After speaking with many families, we designed “Haiti One.” This structure includes a 10-foot main dome with 3 small apses, one for a sleeping nook, one for a cooking surface, and one for storage. It also includes a rocket stove, a recycled door made from pallets, and small window openings using PVC pipes. Two separate groups returned to Haiti and built multiple domes. Please donate to help us reach our goal of funding ICC testing and permitting so more people can build sustainable housing: #futureofsuperadobe #calearth #calearthinstitute

In 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, destroying roads and homes, and knocking out power for residents throughout the island. CalEarth alum, Owen Ingley and his nonprofit, Plenitud PR completed the construction of 3 structures in Puerto Rico that successfully survived the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria. Please donate to help us reach our goal of funding ICC testing and permitting so more people can build housing that withstands hurricanes: #superadobesurvives #futureofsuperadobe #hurricaneproof

After 25 years of research and development, Superadobe is ready to go mainstream. This is an important moment and we need your help!  We are thrilled but there is still some work to be done, and approximately $65,000 left to fundraise for ICC testing and SuperAdobe Permitting, and Phase 2 of our civil improvements. Visit our website to  make a donation to help us complete this important effort. Thank you for your support! In Gratitude, Sheefteh & Dastan Khalili
