Earth is called “⽣⼟” in Chinese, when it is used as a building material without being burned. In ancient China, the term “earth-wood work” was often used to refer to the concept of construction. Even now it still composes the Chinese name of “civil engineering”. It can be seen that earth, like wood, plays a pivotal role in China’s traditional construction techniques and […]

[EN] Since the middle of the last century, efforts have been made to better exploit the potential of earth as a building material. All over the world, interest in earthen architecture is growing, and research centres are multiplying, as are training efforts. However, the major projects carried out in the 1970s (e.g. “Village terre” in Villefontaine, France ; a social housing and infrastructure programme in Mayotte, etc.) did not become widespread. Their appropriation has often remained at the prototype or demonstrator stage. A situation […]
