Techniques

Straw&clay

The straw & clay technique is used to build walls that don’t bear loads. Straw, preferably long fibered, is mixed with clay that works as the bonding material.The straw is soaked in a solution of water and clay and is being compressed into molds of 0,50m maximum height. When the material is dry, we continue building further above.

The advantages of these technique are the high speed of construction and the exceptional thermal insulation. The disadvantages include the high cost of the construction because of the need of a structural frame for the building.
