Earth Discovery Day

A workshop day to discover the potential of raw earth as a building material. Including rammed earth, compressed earth bricks and clay plaster.

This workshop is part of the initiative “Stadsatelier de Ville,” a hybrid meeting spot where students, contractors, architects, government actors and the local enthusiasts learn to build a circular future together. It is a venue where workshops, prototyping, lectures and research on earth construction and circular building take place.

With the earth discovery workshop we want to share our knowledge on earth materials. We want you to learn by doing. A series of hands-on manipulations will allow you to understand different earth construction techniques, and understand the importance of density and humidity in earth. 

We offer you an insight in the approach of BC materials on how to use excavated earth, experiencing the finished material possibilities. A lecture on the brief history of earth architecture will help you travel through time!

Finally, it's your turn to create some samples of clay plaster and rammed earth.



This workshop is held one time per month, see the BC studies website for up-coming dates.
