Earth and bamboo are two materials which have been used together for a wide range of traditional construction techniques in Southeast Asia. Both materials are locally abundant and affordable materials with a very low carbon footprint. Both are known to be materials of the people. And both are materials which can be used for crude self-construction or with highly engineered precision. Are earth and bamboo only materials of the past, or are they also materials for the construction of a sustainable future?  Please come to discover yourself in this 5-day hands-on and experience workshop in Auroville. The same workshop format will be offered four times in the year 2017. - See more at: http://www.agpworkshops.com/workshop-details?workshop=25&date=7th+Aug+2017+-+11th+Aug+2017#sthash.dEVjO33o.dpuf
