A REVOLUTIONARY American architect who envisions a world dotted with radical sustainable homes will soon arrive on the Coast to promote that vision of the future.

Michael Reynolds says his homes - called Earthships - have been built in more than 17 countries, including the US, Mexico and Canada.

He is determined to add Australia to the list.

The high-profile New Mexico native's buildings are made from the natural environment and society's throw-away products.

Mr Reynolds views the world as "stressed and starved". "I'm just trying to be a catalyst to cause things to happen faster and for more people to be able to experience a more green life

style, because there are a lot of barriers between people having a more green, sustainable future," he said yesterday.

Mr Reynolds, profiled as the Garbage Warrior by 60 Minutes, said Earthships obtained electricity from the sun and wind. Their water came from rain and snow.

He said the homes' sewerage sanitary treatment, heating and cooling came from the earth, while food was grown inside and outside the homes.

Mr Reynolds will appear at Maleny RSL on February 25.
