Each year on May 14, it is National Underground America Day.

National Underground America Day, an “unofficial” National holiday was created by architect Malcolm Wells in 1974.  Wells (1926 – 2009) is considered“the father of modern earth-sheltered architecture”.  Wells who was also a writer, illustrator, draftsman, lecturer, cartoonist, columnist, and solar consultant, practiced what he preached by living in a modern earth-sheltered building of his own design.   He took up the challenge of underground architecture as he believed the Earth’s surface was “made for living plants, not industrial plants”.  

Retiring in 2004, Wells continued his advocacy for underground living until the end of his life.

Happy Underground America Day!
