maison en sacs de sable de Nader Khalili février 16th, 2011 by Laetitia S’il y à bien un nom d’architecte, en avance sur temps, à se souvenir dans la construction environnementale, c’est bien Nader Khaili! J’ai suivie un reportage en 2007, sur cet architecte américain d’origine iranienne et ses créations. Il est aujourd’hui, malheureusement, décédé mais il à pu faire aboutir son projet en proposant une solution concrète : Créer des habitations pour les sans-abris du monde entier, quelle en soit les causes, naturelles ou humaines. Jusqu’en 1975, il a excercé comme architecte spécialisé dans les gratte-ciel et à été primé par le Prix Aga Khan suite à l’exposition Alter Architecture pour le « Cal-Earth Institute », l’institut pour l’architecture et l’art de la terre de Californie, qu’il animait à Hesperia.

Natural Building Blog Earthbag & Papercrete Home: Hart House This is our first experimental earthbag dome. The interior diameter is 14 feet and the dome stands about 16 feet high. At first we tried filling the bags with the fine sand that it is built upon, but when we were partly done, the dome fell in because the sand couldn't hold the shape. Then we filled the bags with crushed volcanic rock (scoria) that provides better insulation and holds its shape much better. The arch over the doorway was created with a wooden form that was later removed. We kept the dome tarped most of the time until we papercreted the exterior. Here is the same dome as above, with joists in place for the loft and with the arch form still supporting the entrance arch. This is the beginning of the large elliptical dome that became our kitchen and living room. Because of the elliptical shape, this dome required a rigid pole framework to help support the second story. Here I am applying a coating of papercrete to the outside of the large dome.
Maison en sacs de terre de 50 m2 pour 8700 euros Dans les pays occidentaux, le secteur du bâtiment est énergétivore et fortement émetteur de gaz à effet de serre. De plus, construire une maison engloutie les budgets des ménages. Le concept de maison en sacs de terre permet d'utiliser des produits locaux (terre trouvée sur place) et à un coût dérisoire. Cette maison, un vrai bunker, est presque indestructible. En secteurs fortement déboisés (Haïti, Afrique subsahélienne etc.) le concept d'EcoDome apporte un avantage majeur : sa construction ne nécessite pas de bois (pas de charpente).

Earthbag House Plans Low-Cost Multipurpose Earthbag Building - DIY Related Content Earth Building in Thailand I had heard there are thousands of new earthen houses in Thailand. That really amazed me, so I set o... One of the most practical structures on a small farmstead is a multipurpose building that can serve as a storage shed or cool pantry above ground, or as a root cellar or storm shelter below ground. You can build this multipurpose structure for about $300 using earthbag construction (bags filled with earth and stacked like bricks). In many cases, no building permit will be needed for this little building, because it’s below the minimum size required by most building codes (for structures that are not inhabited and not attached to a residence). Earthbag structures provide a cool space in summer and an escape from the cold in winter, which means this earthbag dome is well suited for many purposes. The earthbag dome has a natural look and blends in with the land. Building With Earthbags The cost of building with earthbags varies. Construction Cost

This multi-purpose dome can serve as a storage shed or cool pantry above ground, or as a rootcellar or storm shelter below ground. The key concept that makes earthbag domes work is corbelling.
FraTerre écologis(c) DÔME Article about the history of earthbag building A Short History of Earthbag Building by Kelly Hart The idea of making walls by stacking bags of sand or earth has been around for at least a century. At first natural materials such as burlap were used to manufacture the bags; more recently woven polypropylene has become the preferred material because of its superior strength. Because of this history of military and flood control, the use of sandbags has generally been associated with the construction of temporary structures or barriers. In 1976 Gernot Minke at the Research Laboratory for Experimental Building at Kassel Polytechnic College in Germany began to investigate the question of how natural building materials like sand and gravel could be used for building houses without the necessity of using binders. 1978, a prototype house using an earthquake-proof stacked-bag type of construction was built in Guatemala. In 2006, at the request of Dr.
