Out of all natural construction materials, mud has been the most essential building material over centuries. Mudbrick is locally abundant and affordable material with a very low carbon footprint. So in this age increasing environmental awareness about the potential of mud as a green building material is necessary.
This one day mud workshop provided participants with the knowledge needed to evoke their sensibility towards benefit of using mud in construction. The content of the workshop helped them understand the methodology of soil testing along with a hands-on experience in making bricks from the pioneer of mud architecture in India- Ar. Revati Kamath.
Students and professionals from architecture, civil engineering and related fields attended the workshop with great enthusiasm.
