Natural Building Techniques Around the World
Naturally built homes use local, minimally processed, abundant and/or renewable natural materials. They are designed to suit their climate and geography, providing a modest shelter that can last for many centuries. Ideally they, and the way they are lived in, are in balance and harmony with the environment. The resources used to build them are either so abundant that the impact of their use is not significant or they are easily replenished within the lifetime of the building. This collection shows naturally built homes and public buildings from different climates using a selection of natural materials and building techniques.
