Earth Building Night

Start date: 28-03-2019 End date: 28-03-2019

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.

Featured speakers:

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

28-03-2019 - 28-03-2019
18.00 - 20.00
