SEDA and A&DS Materials Library present their annual collaborative materials event: this time looking to (re)introduce the Scottish architectural community to the age-old repertoire of earthen building techniques.
The craft of transforming the earth beneath our feet into floors, plasters and walls is as old as construction itself and has not simply survived but been honed and refined for use in a contemporary context and is currently enjoying a renaissance – and renewed research interest – thanks to a dedicated community of architects, builders, hobbyists and research partners.
This event shall present practitioners with extensive experience with earth building to encourage its further uptake across Scotland.
Rowland Keable: Based in London, Director Rammed Earth Consulting CIC, Honorary Associate Professor UNESCO Chair of Earthen Architecture, on understanding current practice in Earth construction
Joel Franklyn: stone mason and turf builder, based on Skye
