Compressed Stabilised Earth Block (CSEB) is composed of a mix of soil, sand and water, stabilised with ~5% cement, and compressed manually. This technique aims to make extensive use of raw earth as the main building material, thereby utilizing low-cost, low-carbon, local materials and minimising the use of imported industrial building materials.
The immemorial tradition of building with earth proves the capacity of versatile earth construction techniques to adapt to varied environmental regions. This two week design workshop will reinvestigate the design capacities of earthen architecture through bioclimatic reasoning. In a design studio environment.
