Abstract

All you ever wanted to know about clay but were afraid to ask
The article tackles the question of what clay is and why we ceased to build things out of clay: "The material called mud or simply earth, served architecture for thousands of years with impressive durable results. The still existing pyramids were built of clay, as were 16-storey minarets, or houses and cities teeming with life. During the 20th century, that material was considered obsolete. Today, more and more scientists and architects are researching it and discovering its surprising properties and potential. The first part of everything you want to know about earth construction but you are afraid to ask deals with myths and prejudice against earth buildings.
