The greenhouse provides fantastic outdoor shelter from rain, wind, snow and create a climate equivalent to northern Italy. Patios surrounding the house are used from March to well into October.
Built maximum sustainable materials, preferably wood and without poisons. Well insulated for low power consumption. Overall, this gives a building with a small footprint that gives back in the form of fruits and vegetables
Design to produce energy instead of consuming it. Combines technologies such as solar cells with simple solutions such as natural ventilation.

Looks like an overproduction to me. Concepts are great but too many systems = too much maintenance. I like the idea of a house inside a green house but it shouldn't look like a conventional home.
thats actually my plan but i cannot find an approximation for the building costs
this would not work in populated areas, too much wear and tear…. think, "neighbor with a rock throwing lawnmower" or "kid with a slingshot". Not to mention the growing of interior and exterior trees that would constantly need trimming to avoid pressing the glass shell. If you use laminated or tempered glass, price goes way way up. If you use plastic… your part of the problem you say you want to avoid. Solution, Star Trek transparent Aluminum…. if it worked to contain whales on a spaceship it will work to contain a home in an earthship.
Why are we not funding this?
Could this be used for indoor fruit trees?
so, it's a deconstructed Earthship? Probably costs twice as much to build and twice as much to own, and I would bet it does not function as well either.
