Compressed Earth Blocks Volume 2: Manuel Of Design And Construction

With its attractive layout and the answers it provides to all the practical questions that site practitioners might ask, this book seeks to impart confidence in a construction technology, which is still historically young and not sufficiently known. It emphasizes the link between building material, structure, form, and architectural detailing. But it also addresses the importance of the technology with regard to economic and social benefits for the local population, as are confirmed by some of the project examples presented in it.
