HOW TO: Strawbale Building

In this “How To”, you will find a slideshow-introduction to the inexpensive, energy efficient and sustainable art of building with clay and straw bales.

As part of the Engine Room Europe project, the Creative Strategies of Sustainability embarked on a multitude of smaller projects to find and describe for sustainable organisational culture, and the project leader ufaFabrik (Berlin, Germany) arranged conferences and prototype cases, this publication being a result of the latter.

The 20 image slide show is a “quick and dirty” introduction to the art of straw bale building. For further instructions, please consult the information provided by TEH member centre Stanica: here

A special thanks to Sigrid Niemer for overall coordination and help and to Maria Garcia and Werner Wiartalla for their expert advice and to ufaFabrik for the photographs.
