Contemporizing Earthen Architecture - A Futuristic and Sustainable Approach
|Ar. Priyanka, Dr. Monika Shekhar Gupta
Utmost metropolises and municipalities in developing countries are passing a massive migration of population from pastoral areas. The maturity of the pastoral population migrates to civic areas hoping to find a job and an advanced income for their survival. This large affluence creates a high demand for civic casing and structure, which the maturity of the settlers cannot go. also, the inadequate use of low- cost traditional structure accoutrements and construction ways in domestic construction has redounded in precious casing stock for the maturity of the poor. That's thus a critical need to assess indispensable structure accoutrements and ways that are both affordable and sustainable. Stabilized earth is an indispensable structure material that's significantly cheaper than using conventional slipup and concrete, and is also environmentally sustainable. Earth has been used as a construction material on a global position since age.
Earth as the building material gives a lot of potential possibilities & alternative solutions, not only to the architects or the environment-conscious planners & designers, but it will encourage & respect the volunteers of commonality & make them blend towards the field of rethinking sustainable practices with their quality of living & even pave ways for skillful labors in the mainstream of the construction industry.
The objective of the study is to understand the potential of the ‘Earth’ as the building material & trace its evolution of construction techniques since the ages by analyzing the ecological aspect, challenges & thermal performance of Earthen Architecture to explore innovative construction techniques in the current context & future trends
Professionally architects do have the power – we must take a lead & be actively critical & analytical about the materials we choose for the design of our buildings. But innovation towards more circular material flow is already out there. We simply need to be bold enough to understand & test their potential & put them into the field of sustainable practice – the alternative & the affordable solution just lies beneath our feet – ‘the Earth’.
This study is limited to the detailed understanding of building physics revolving around the Rammed Earth |RE| construction & CSEB |Compressed Stabilized Earth Block| used in the mainstream of sustainable building construction.
