OBJECTIVE

The use/reintroduction of traditional materials and techniques in the current practice of architecture, through the dissemination of their qualities and virtues. Traditional materials and techniques allow the recovery of trades with great social and territorial impact (craftsmanship, production and local economy). To achieve these objectives we have developed a series of activities in the last year, of which the most impressive, without a doubt, has been the organization of the Earthen Construction Conference within the scope of the Sustainable Construction Fair of Vic.

OBJECTIVE

The use/reintroduction of traditional materials and techniques in current architectural practice, through the dissemination of their qualities and virtues. As traditional materials and techniques, they allow the recovery of crafts, with great social and territorial impact (craftsmanship, production and local economy). In order to achieve these objectives we have developed a series of activities in the last year, of which the most impressive has undoubtedly been the organisation of the earthen construction days within the framework of the Fira de Construcció Sostenible de Vic (Vic Sustainable Construction Fair).

WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON

We are making compilations of regulations and examples of traditional construction, with the free contribution of all interested parties.
Looking ahead to 2023, we have the following activities planned. Research, search and comparison of standards, compilation of a directory of craftsmen to turn to if we want to use traditional techniques.

With the support and participation of the GRETA association, we will organize workshops on traditional techniques.
