Earth construction workshop in Morocco by Hasselt University with BC Architects


19.07.2019, 10:00 to 25.07.2019, 18:00

During a 6-day earth construction workshop in Ouled Merzoug (Morocco), participants will do hands-on experiments with different earth construction techniques, guided by local professionals. A series of introductory lectures will be given by Jasper Van der Linden (Hasselt University) and Bregt Hoppenbrouwers (BC architects & studies).

The aim of the six-day earth construction workshop is to spread the knowledge on ecological, bioclimatic construction with natural materials, to valorise local knowledge and question today’s way of constructing.

The workshop takes place in the context of the postgraduate certificate Building Beyond Borders of the faculty of Architecture and Arts of Hasselt University at Ouled Merzoug, a small village in the heart of Morocco.

Now on display in the CIVA in Brussels: The exhibition The act of building. BC architects & studies.
