Lehmbau Hands On 2023
Earth Construction, Seminar
Earth building techniques such as earth bricks, cobb, rammed earth, and wattle & daub are among the oldest building methods known to mankind and are still of great importance in today's highly technologised building industry. Due to its potential for life-cycle construction and its positive effect on interior room climate, earth building must be given a higher status in architectural education. In the seminar, the theoretical and practical basics for the application of earth building techniques will be explored and illustrated using a series of reference projects with a focus on the European context. The seminar outcomes will serve as preparation for a future exhibition and publication.
