Process of making earth bricks

The construction process was also continuation of trial and error. Collection of soil, analysis of particle size, appropriate mix ratio, experiments with form-work for the bricks production, pouring and de-type of the bricks, the setting of the curing period while controlling temperature and humidity.  Almost every process was examined on the site for the first time. To form the curved walls we needed to produce over the dozens of various brick’s shapes. Tekuto’s team also went to the site duty along with professional craftsmen to work on the house construction and production of the “Earth Bricks”. Both clients also participated in the construction.
