Earth as a Building Material

24th April, 2017
Devon Rural Archive, Shilstone, Devon

Earth is a significant traditional building material in the West Country, generally used in cob construction but also as a mortar and plaster. This session explores cob and other earth building techniques, the selection of suitable soils and the design and construction process. Recent case studies will be presented to illustrate that earth still has a role in today`s architecture.
