† Earth House: Mother Nature †

"The word Mother Nature represents nature that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing features of nature by embodying it in the form of the mother" (quoted from Wikipedia). I think the word has been fully incorporated into modern day's architecture which I think is kinda cool.

For tourists who are visiting Dietikon in Switzerland, they shouldn't miss this Earth House. Earth House's concept is slightly different from traditional houses that are built on the land, where these houses are built below the ground level. These houses reminds me of hobbit's house from Lord of the Ring.

I wouldn't say these houses are for caveman but I would rather say these people want to live with the nature.
