Earth bag construction

This is a sustainable project called Project Somos Children's village, constructed with earth bags and a wooden support, all constructed on site. 

The idea is to create a building that could endure at least 100 years, as a experiment. 

The design is ascetically beautiful to harmonize with its incredible natural setting.

The construction technique and materials are intentionally chosen to last at least 100 years. (earthbag/superadobe construction) and are "fabricated" on site 

It is a simple and economical method that can be replicated locally anywhere. It will functionally serve the families who live there.

  1. To be accurate this project can not be called an industrialised construction. The chapter on-site construction refers to those construction methods, though industrialised, are completed on site.
    But, on the other hand, I consider that it is a quite interesting construction methods and that industrialised systems can learn a lot from this craftsmen techniques.
