Cultural Homes of the World

building of earth bag cubbyHealesville High School year 8 Art Students have almost completed an Earthbag ‘Home of the World’- the first of a series of cubbies that will be constructed funded by a small grant from The Andrews Foundation.  This first one was introduced and led by Alvyn Williams from Soft Loud House Architects.
We chose to begin with an earthbag building as this is a current building solution in disaster areas such as Kathmandu where Earthbag buildings withstood the earthquakes.
