There is a growing global trend to use earth as a construction material. This occurs due to increased environmental awareness, concern about unnecessary energy expenditure and the consumption of resources required for the manufacture of industrialized materials.

The most sensible solution is the use of available local materials, labor and appropriate tools, as well as the integration of correct techniques so that the earth becomes the ideal material for this purpose.

This book teaches how to use this material, the recommended construction techniques, and reveals projects carried out in different parts of the world, thus demonstrating that we have all the conditions to create sustainable architecture capable of respecting the planet, the environment, people and traditions.
