dc.description.abstract This thesis has inquired as to the social and economic factors which are necessary for an industrialization process. The study has concentrated on defining industrialization and building systems; the chronological development of earthen-shelters; and the energy, contractor, and financing issues which are prevalent in the existing earthen-sheltered housing market. In addition, the thesis addresses issues such as the social perception of earthen-sheltered space, comparative cost analysis to conventional housing, and land development ethics.
