Workshop – April 2015 – Prefabricated Rammed Earth Panels, Queretaro, Mexico

April 2015 – ITESM, Queretaro, Mexico.

The objective was to test different slenderness and handle-ability ratios of thin rammed earth panels. Simultaneously, we tested different minerals as pigments in rammed earth mixes.

Workshop was of one and a half day where 16 different soil samples from different parts of mexico were field tested for appropriateness in earth construction. Participants learnt the art of designing and making mixes, textures and colors for rammed earth.
