Paper Title:
Earthships-Scrap Tires Recycling in Building Design
  Abstract

With rapid development in automobile industry and increasing environment problems, a difficulty confronting many countries is how to recycle scrape tires. The earthship comes out as an effective way to make full use of scrap tires in building design. By introducing its construction procedure, current conditions at home and abroad, and two case studies abroad, the paper concludes its advantages in environment protection, building performance, economy and technology. Besides, in view of the present condition in China, It suggests to first build earthships in less developed areas, or areas with extreme weather conditions, and try to popularize them in temporary structures, garden buildings, or special buildings.
