"Layer by Layer Building With Erosion" by Timur Ersen

28 Aug - 03 Sep 2016 / Lessac, France, FR

"Layer by Layer Building With Erosion" by Timur Ersen

In this workshop we are going to design and build a rammed-earth wall together. We’ll all get physically involved and feel how much energy is needed to build a wall by taking the most common material, earth (eroded material), and compress that in a formwork – layer after layer. Right after taking off the formwork the whole process becomes apparent in the wall’s beautiful structure. It will stay rough, face the weather and thus get eroded to an anticipated point called « calculated erosion ».
