Earthbag building design, Portugal

How to make an earthship from earthbags? A South African friend of mine asked me to design an earthbag house for him for his side in Portugal.

I made a plan for him with domes around an open space covered with a flat roof with a glasshouse, big terraces, covered in the hills. Each dome has his own program: livingroom, kitrchen, studyroom, bedrooms, bathroom etc. situated around the open place with greenery. The whole complex must be self-sufficient with sun panels, filtered rainwater and black water, natural ventilation and natural heating.
