BUILDING LOCAL: EARTH was a 10-day design-build workshop in Barichara Colombia. It explored the aesthetic, assembly and tectonic qualities of local materials: earth, stone, fique, bamboo and wood. The design-build studio engaged students in a series of workshops that culminated in the design and construction of an efficient and innovative farmhouse.
It took place from June 15 to June 25, 2012
This design-build studio was open to graduate, upper-level undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) and professionals who were interested in engaging in the explorations of these techniques and their use in contemporary architecture.
