About Cal-Earth

The California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture is a non-profit/charitable foundation at the cutting edge of Earth and Ceramic Architecture technologies today. Founded in 1986, 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.

Cal-Earth’s mission is guided by three principles: (1) shelter is a basic human right, (2) every human being should be able to build a house for him or herself, and (3) the best way to provide shelter for the exponentially increasing human population is by building with earth.
