Building with earth holds several different advantages. One aspect is the local availability of earth as a construction material at almost any place in the world. This experimental project has its origins on another nearby construction site in Witten, Germany, where huge amounts of excavation earth were stored. We recognized this unused material as potential building material – the idea for a little rammed earth building arose. The idea turned into a sketch, and the sketch turned into a design, followed by an intense time of crafting together.

 A diverse team of young crafters and architects has worked on this project, learning from each other and experimenting with the building material earth. Apart from the clay, we also sourced the sand stone for the foundation from a local site.
