Building with earth

Gernot Minke is a German architect and university professor, specialized in sustainable architecture and bio-construction. He is the author of several books on the subject, including "Building with Earth: Design and Technology of a Sustainable Architecture."

This book is a reference in the field of earth architecture, presenting in detail and in a practical way the use of this material in different construction techniques. It covers everything from the historical and cultural aspects of building with earth to technical issues such as soil selection, processing and treatment, construction techniques, structural stability, weather protection, among others. In addition, the book also presents a series of case studies of earth architecture projects, showing concrete examples of how this technique can be applied in different contexts and scales, from small rural houses to large institutional buildings.

It is a fundamental book for architects, engineers, students, and all those interested in sustainable construction and the valorization of natural and local materials.
