Earth Works
International Summer School - on modern earthen structures and sustainable architecture


Sept 01 - 18, 2010



The first Summer School took place in 2010 in Gmunden/Austria. Under the supervision of Martin Rauch, Anna Heringer and Jean-Marie Le Tiec several small rammed earth buildings were built on the banks of the Traunsee. The international participants built a rest area on the beach promenade in Gmunden and a changing room on the public beach of the city.
The motivation of the participants resulted in a joint manifesto for a humane and sustainable habitat.
