#5 Design and build with Rammed Earth
The workshop will be a two-week training program. We will build with rammed earth in a real context, at 1:1 scale for and with the local community in a public space. A balance between theory and practice (around 25% theory, 75% practice) will approach in detail the material and the techniques to build with rammed earth.
The most important topics covered by this training are: rammed earth production processes, how to transform raw earth into a built element; building with rammed earth – its principles, soil selection, level of mechanisation; rammed earth structures and details, an introduction to the design of rammed earth building; prefabricated rammed earth.
