Ziegert Roswag Seiler Architekten Ingenieure:Earthen School in Pakistan .An excellent example of vernacular architecture.





'Tipu sultan merkez' earthen school in jar maulwi, pakistan by berlin-based architectural and engineering practice ziegert roswag seiler architekten ingenieure has received this year's holcim award for sustainable construction within the asia-pacific region. The first level of of the two-story building is constructed
with cob walls comprised of locally sourced clay, sand, straw, water and earth. Resting upon brick foundations,the interior spaces are protected from moisture penetrating from the ground or rainwater. The upper flooris a bamboo framework filled with an earthen mixture.

The combined result of the structure absorbs humidity and the mass of the thick 60 centimeter bearing walls reduces the temperature of interior spaces by 8 degrees celsius during the 40 degree summer heat. Local residents were able to build their new community facility by implementing appropriate construction technologies and
skills which were already present within the village.

Dear vgosh Interior,
Thank you very much for your comments.If you are interested in vernacular architecture you can also search for Hassan Fathy,an excellent professor-engineer-architect from Egypt who utilized ancient design methods and materials and trained local inhabitants to make their own materials and build their own buildings. I hope to post parts of his work soon.
I visited your site and i found it very interesting and i will inform my collegues about your work.
Have a nice and creative day.
