(Not) Architecture: Rammed Earth

Earthen architectural elements

The (Not)Architecture projects use an adaptation of ancient building methods that have recently been used as alternative ‘green’ building practices in which earth is packed into forms. When left un-plastered, objects built using this method recall geological or archeological strata. What is in fact seen in these strata, however, is a record of the production of the work and how it changes as the material – commercially available potting soil – dries, hardens and cracks over the course of an exhibit.
