Abstract

(Lincoln School of Architecture and the Built Environment) research focuses on natural architecture - constructing buildings made of unprocessed materials such as straw, earth, bamboo or timber etc – exploring the relationship the natural building movement has with social dynamics and culture, focusing on the Lincolnshire ‘mud and stud’ design. For a week in July 2017 Lincoln became the British and Irish capital of earth architecture thanks to the annual EBUKI (Earth Building UK and Ireland) Clayfest conference taking place at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle and the University of Lincoln. People from across Lincolnshire were able to attend workshops, trips, showcases and talks on the emerging science of clay from the most prominent British and Irish experts and enthusiasts in natural architecture, aiming to inform and change perceptions of earth architecture.
