About this product

Earth is a natural building material that is at once traditional and modern. In recent years it has advanced to become a high-quality material. Its aesthetic qualities and character along with its beneficial effect on the indoor climate and general well-being are widely recognised.

Of particular relevance are its environmental properties, for example the incomparably low energy balance of many earth building materials.
As an authentic historical building material, earth is also widely used in the conservation and renovation of historic buildings.

This book provides an overview of the current state of the art of planning and building earth constructions and is an invaluable reference for architects, engineers, building contractors and tradesmen.

In this book:

  • Material properties,
  • Earth plasters and renders,
  • Dry earth construction,
  • Internal insulation techniques,
  • Masonry construction,
  • Rammed earth construction,
  • Renovation of existing earth structures,
  • Building practice and legislation.
