The workshop focuses on approaches and techniques of building with cost efficient, environment-friendly and sustainable building materials such as mud and lime. Mud and lime have been widely used as building materials since ages.
In this workshop one will learn how to identify different properties of earth, lime, how to procure it, prepare it and learn different ways of using it. The interactive sessions will create a fast learning environment that covers theory and practical hands-on sessions on climate responsive design and planning. This will be done by the use of natural building materials, including other interdisciplinary components such as the use of renewable energy, dry compost toilets, wastewater treatment, waste management and rainwater harvesting.
Through the workshop the participants will also get to experience the various architectural expressions at Auroville and the learning that came during the building process.
