LEHM2020 proceedings are online

The published proceedings for this years cancelled LEHM2020 highlight the many different perspectives on the multifaceted material Earth as a prime example of a natural building materialBe it through regionally implemented projects, research achievements or the implementation of a set of rules for building methods: earth mixes it up!

We are pleased to be (co-)authors of six of the publications and that this still underestimated material is getting a little more attention through this year’s articles. Under the following links you can find the articles in which ZRS Architekten Ingenieure, in cooperation with the Natural Building lab and other authors, participated in writing.
