Why should we care about earth-friendly architecture?
Globally, the construction industry is responsible for 40% of air pollution, 40% of drinking water pollution and 50% of landfill waste. Don’t let your home be a part of this horror.
There’s so much you can explore with rustic building materials and this workshop will open these opportunities for you.
Are natural building materials better?
Homes built with natural materials will keep the interiors relatively cool in summers and warm in winters. The workshop is focused to keep your construction cost-efficient and materials easily obtainable. Mud and lime will be the hero materials and the construction designed in a way to suit the climate of India.
What to expect in the Auroville camp:
Learn how to identify different properties of earth, lime, how to procure it, prepare it and understand different ways of using it.
The interactive sessions will create a fast learning environment that covers theory and practical hands-on sessions.

Go on visits that explore a rich tapestry of approaches and styles of building
