Design and Build with Compressed Earth Blocks, a 4 week building course, in Montemor-o-Novo, Portugal. During the workshop we built a prototype for artists in residence at Oficinas da Cerâmica e da Terra, a research department from Oficinas do Convento ONG.
Compressed Earth Blocks (CEB) are made from a mix of raw earth. The development of this masonry material took place through the inspiration on rammed earth materials and raw earth bricks, the adobes. CEB meets contemporary needs and standards. These are regular shaped prefabricated bricks, produced with local soil, which behave as a regular fired brick in a building site context but with all the advantages of raw earth material.
The workshop was a four-week training. A balance between theory and practice approached in detail the material and the masonry techniques to build with CEB.
