Building with Earth

a SuperAdobe Workshop 14 to 20 Out - Monchique

In this 7 days workshop we will use the Superadobe Technique using pressed earth and we will get a practical introduction to cob rendering.  The workshop want to give theoretical and practical tools to self-building, so there will be theory given and a lot of hands on.


Superadobe is a simple and easy technique where the whole family can participate in the self building of their home. Bags are filled with earth of the site overlapping one another by barbed wire, to give consistency to structures, creating resistance to earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, fire... An ecological solution for houses to be build in little time, at low cost with local and natural materials.


We will build and give the first cob render to an earth dome - Sound Temple - of 3.5 mt diameter with door and windows.
