Summary "This handbook offers a practical, systematic overview of the many uses of loam, or clayey soil, and the wide variety of techniques for processing it. Furthermore, the book explains particular building methods relating to prefabricated panels, direct forming with loam, weather protection or earthquake resistance. Numerous drawings and photos of construction sites show the concrete execution of earth architecture. Twenty-seven exemplary international projects illustrate the wide spectrum of design possibilities with earth."--Jacket
