The central philosophy of this workshop is to enable researchers, practitioners, decision makers and interested laymen from different disciplines to interact in a transdisciplinary action approach to awaken the importance of adopting green affordable building practices. This paper shows how to initiate a low cost and an energy efficient earth buildings and discuss the criteria on which rammed earth structures is assessed. (Less)
