Women’s Health Centre / FARE

Project description and some great pictures of the construction process after the break. The CBF [Centre pour le Bien-être des Femmes] Women’s Health Centre in Burkina Faso was created between 2005 and 2007 by AIDOS, an Italian NGO fighting for Women’s Rights in Developing Countries. The volumes that contain the various rooms are independent of the roof structure and freely placed atop the platform. Byrne Residence – will bruder architects.

Ladrillo, piedra y hormigón visto para una vivienda sana

Para una vivienda de 220 m² (más grande que el común en el medio) es una excelente inversión. ¿Cómo lograron esa optimización de recursos, que es una de las bases de la sustentabilidad? Pues mediante la optimización de los sistemas constructivos, el uso adecuado de los materiales y las tesis arquitectónicas.Pablo Moreira explica que la climatización natural se logró con la adecuada orientación de la casa en el predio. También con el planteamiento volumétrico, donde el prisma de ladrillo se cierra hacia el sol de la tarde y se contrapone a una cubierta ligera abovedada que protege del sol de la mañana, encuadrando el paisaje hacia los volcanes de la cordillera central.El manejo racional de los desechos de obra ayudó a la sostenibilidad, afirma Yahira Álvarez.

Earthbrick Construction: C.E.B. or Compressed Earth Blocks and Cinva Ram Plans.

Construction Can you build a house dirt cheap? You bet. There are a variety of techniques to build your own home from the soil at hand, including cob construction, adobe, rammed earth, and compressed earth block (CEB) construction. In CEB construction, for example, soil can be compressed into earth bricks with the aid of a Cinva Ram. The photo here is of Michael Gross with Terra Block Inc. in Orlando, Florida, with a Cinva Ram he built from the Cinva Ram Plan Set. Rustic Modern: Concrete & Rammed Earth House Design. Regional modernism is nothing new, but when executed well it can create a timelessness surrounding house and home – an ageless aesthetic that mixes contextual layouts and sustainable local materials in combination with clean modernist lines, elemental architectural forms and cutting-edge eco-friendly building technologies.

Rustic Modern: Concrete & Rammed Earth House Design

This rural home in the heart of the New Mexico desert draws on vernacular building traditions, employing flat-packed mud brick and simple wooden post-and-beam construction, but also uses concrete as a counterpoint to these conventional materials. The stated goal of architect Signer Harris was to have an “antique home of traditional architecture” but without resorting to kitschy decor of faux-nostalgic ornamentation.

A traditional courtyard was created and surrounded by a kitchen, living room and bedrooms that mediate between the outside world and peaceful interior garden space. Rammed Earth House: Brown, Red & Brilliant Green Design. That idea of using mud straight from the Earth – rammed into brick shapes or layered in rows – is one of the oldest building techniques known to humanity.

Rammed Earth House: Brown, Red & Brilliant Green Design

The recent resurgence of interest in red-and-brown ‘rammed-earth’ building designs may be a ‘green’ trend … but it is also a brilliant (and beautiful) way to save money by factoring local materials, and cheap construction techniques older than written history into even simple home plans. Whether formed first into clay bricks or layered within forms (often used for on-site concrete construction), the naturally variegated textures and local earthen colors in rammed earth buildings become a core part of the aesthetic when a structure is finished. In areas like Arizona where dirt and mud are far more plentiful than wood or stone, people turn to this classic building method out of necessity but also find that the designs can blend in remarkable ways with their surrounding environments.

Earth blocks or clay lump use a well-mixed wet earth, which is normally (although not always) combined with a good quantity of vegetable matter, most commonly straw or chaff.

Earth Building UK

The earth mixture is then formed either by hand or cast in wooden moulds to make regular sized blocks or bricks. We know that the Romans used mudbricks (blocks) for construction in the UK, and it is likely local building traditions were already in existence that pre-date the Roman introduction of earth blocks in the UK. Today the building tradition is most associated with East Anglia.

Mechanically cast mudbricks using forms and presses, rapidly produce uniformly shaped and sized (and often more compact) mudbricks. Research by the University of Bath, Arc Architects and others has investigated the use of unfired (green) bricks for new construction. Fortress Brick House by Wise Architecture (KR)

Houses in Sindang-dong, a neighbourhood in Seoul, Korea, are built right up against each other at the foot of Hanyang City Wall which straddles a very narrow, steep hill overlooking the neighbourhood and the city.

Fortress Brick House by Wise Architecture, photo: Noh Kyoung Say the architects, “a lot of shamans have lived around that neighborhood. It was said that due to these circumstances, the name of this town was originated from ‘Sindang’ which means ‘a Spiritual place’ in Korean.” “The landlord bought this land since he wanted to live closely with his son’s family within one property. Though privacy was an important element to consider, each house needed to be opened to each other. Egypt - Earth Architecture. Revealing the Potential of Compressed Earth Blocks—A Study in the Materiality of Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB): Lightness, Tactility, and Formability, by Egyptian architect Omar Rabie, documents explorations of the potential of CEB while studying at MIT, The Architectural Association and Auroville.

Egypt - Earth Architecture

In these two experimental mock-ups, Rabie explored the different possibilities of bondings using one block—specifically how the shape of the single block influences the block bonding patterns in a stack bond and running bond. This portion of a wall was built of specially formed interlocking blocks to increase friction to test how high friction masonry wall will highly resist lateral loads in comparison to walls constructed with standard blocks.

In this case, the blocks are interlocked in the long direction of the wall. This experiment proved that it is possible to freely form more complex CEBs and build walls with an unusual bonds, like this strong zigzag bond. India - Earth Architecture.
