Quick Reference

There are long traditions of buildings made of earth or mud (see adobe, cob, pisé de terre). In the 1960s proposals were mooted to create buildings by pouring concrete on to mounds of earth which would be excavated once the concrete had set, thus creating cave-like forms called earth-work architecture.
