Open Call: The Rammed Earth House Competition

Open Call: The Rammed Earth House Competition

OUTSIDER - a magazine that transcends boundaries has launched an architectural competition that encourages exploration of the significant potential of earth as a building material. The technique is one of the oldest known building methods. It carries a great potential in becoming a prevailing “novelty” of the future. The great environmental aspects, unique aesthetics, and energy efficiency are reasons enough to explore the topic forward.

The aim of the Rammed Earth House competition is to design an experimental building made of rammed earth at a specifically selected location in the South-east region of Slovenia. The competition's task is to design one residential building for two people on a minimum area built of rammed earth.

The competition location is in the village of Dobrava near Škocjan, Slovenia, on a flat landscape near the river Krka. It is one of the few farms in the area that has retained the characteristics of an early 20th-century farm.

Deadline for Registration and Submission is until 30th March 2021.
