hi Olivier,

I have been studying Earth sheltered structures and their applications in indian context.

Climate in which which i think it would be most successfull is hot and dry ( western india )

I would like to know from you , which books/projects/websites should i refer to for architectural details .... which could be sustainable and if possible cost-effective.
