In 1984, Iranian architect Nader Khalili developed the innovative earthbag construction technique known as SuperAdobe. It was developed with its potential for building on Mars and the Moon in mind, as a home design for future spacefaring generations.
This house was built as a secondary house combining earth, wood and stone structures with very traditional Moroccan finishings: Tadelakt in wall, earth tiles in the ground, sculptured cedar wood, Ourika Stones in the façade and roofs with eucalyptus and bamboo.

The Tehran-based architecture studio ZAV Architects has recently completed Presence in Hormuz 2, a community of Superadobe earthbag domes that empowers its residents. Built with earth-based materials, these colorful domes were constructed with the help of local residents looking to revive their local economy.
