Building with rammed earth | earthLAB Ásgeir Sigurjónsson, David Martínez, Shea Hagy | TEDxGöteborg
- Published on: 5/9/2018
- Imagine constructing whole buildings from the dirt beneath our feet. Sounds crazy, right? Well, this concept of “rammed earth” is far from new and has been used in constructions for centuries in buildings that are still standing strong today.
In this talk, earthLAB members Ásgeir Sigurjónsson, David Martínez, and Shea Hagy not only enlighten audiences on the importance of using “rammed earth” as a more sustainable building material for the future, but also demonstrate how easy it is to make.
EarthLAB, a sustainable development studio based in Gothenburg, wants us to rethink our relationship with the ground beneath our feet.
While studying a master in design for sustainable development at Chalmers University of Technology, the three teamed up outside of class to work on a sustainable project and landed on “rammed earth.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
