BUILDING WITH EARTH PAULINA WOJCIECHOWSKA PDF

Forget about the usual building materials such as concrete, vinyl siding or pink foam insulation when it comes to Paulina Wojciechowska's home in Poland. Her humble abode was built from the earth, quite literally. The walls are made of sand, water, clay and straw. The roof is held up with wood beams. Homes like Wojciechowska's are beyond green standards.

Paulina is a qualified architect in the UK, and has specialised in natural building for the last 18 years. She spent most of her impressionable years in Afghanistan and India, where she was surrounded by indigenous architecture. After completing her architecture degree, she realised that modern building styles, methods and materials were not for her, and she set off to follow her passion. She later studied with the Canelo Project. After all this amazing experience Paulina stayed in one place for a while to write her book, and she taught the Technology and Development module on the MSc.

With a core philosophy of providing very reasonably priced workshops, Paulina is bringing about her vision of allowing nearly everyone to come and learn these amazing techniques for themselves. She has designed and built three straw bale houses in Poland in this time, and taught around the world, most recently in Turkey, Zambia and Thailand.

She is also still a practising architect, with a focus on designing structures built from natural materials. Antony came into natural building in when he met Paulina at an Earth, Hands and Houses workshop. He fell in love with natural building, and his life changed forever.

He presented all Earth, Hands and Houses workshops alongside Paulina for 4 years and owns his own straw bale house on his olive grove in the mountains of Spain.

Antony is unqualified in anything to do with building and teaching… but he has a love, a natural talent, and years of experience in both. He has systematically taken apart and re-built every house he has lived in for the last 25 years.

Between and he set up and ran what became the foremost technology training company in the world in a niche area of silicon chip design. He has a natural talent in making complicated things easy to understand. Antony also specialises in not specialising in anything — he likes to know enough about a broad range of subjects rather than everything about just one. He has a deep love of people, and really appreciates their differences.

These perspectives enable him to see the world from many angles and explain the range of possibilities in natural building so you can make the right choices for your situation.

He is a well known environmentalist in Poland, and has made many radio and television appearances. He is often one of the first to be called on by communities all over Poland when environmental issues threaten the environmental health of a region.

Jarema has also given key-note lectures in English on toxic materials at the Natural Building Colloquium in Czech in and in Oxford Brookes University in Jarema is an ecologist, teacher and journalist, who did his Masters Degree in the field of Sociology at the University of Warsaw.

I discovered the joys of natural building in when my family and I attended an earth-bag workshop with Earth Hands and Houses. By the end of the course I knew that I could replicate this technology and build myself a home, and that was exciting and empowering. My previous experience in building had been in renovating an old chapel house, a cottage and then a modern build; in all of those experiences I had never felt totally confident in my choices and undertakings. It was liberating to discover that, through Earth Hands and Houses, I could learn to design and build my dream natural home and feel fairly confident about the choices I was making.

My working life is varied and exciting. Through my own illness, I discovered the world of healing: I spent one and a half years learning to heal myself from a debilitating disease. I have studied Aikido and karate for 32 years, and I wove the themes of energy and power from the martial world into the energetic worlds of healing.

I found that I had a transferable skill which worked well in personal and leadership development: I have taken my work into International corporations, lectured at Cranfield Business University and run a private practice offering healing and coaching.

Natural building adds a whole new dimension to my work; it is outdoors, physical and fun!! Working with Earth Hands and Houses has introduced me to a community of beautiful, inspiring people and given me the practical skills to empower people all over the world with natural building technologies. Kennedy Networks Productions, Inc. I spent most of my impressionable years in Afghanistan and India, where I was surrounded by indigenous architecture.

It was during this time, I suspect that I developed subconsciously the passion for honesty, modesty and harmony in design. I worked with the premise that, notwithstanding progress and modern mobility, significant aspects of our beings remains biological.

In his writings on the biological basis of psychoanalysis, Peter Fuller shows how myths arise from the same substratum as dreams, and that they play a significant role in how we engage with the world.

These myths are neither fiction nor flights of fantacy, but the concrete manifestation of this mythopoetic dimension of our being. I have attempted to show the city through its buildings, might, form, spatial realms suffused with character and mood where lives could be fruitfully enacted.

To be at the beginning. It is good for the mind to go back to the beginning, because the start of any established human activity is its most wonderful moment. This view can teach us the fundamental principles of each invention, thereby showing the possibility of taking another path. As the building material dictated the form of the dwelling, the builders were sensitive to it. During the summer of , I finally embarked on my long awaited journey to discover indigenous materials and techniques.

One of my earliest and most exciting discoveries was the arch. Here was a form that occurs all around us in nature. The arch allows us to be free of the need to use wood, and materials such as concrete and steel, which are high in embodied energy. All naturally occurring structures use the arch form as their structural element…. However my passion for the arch had noting to do with dome or vault or any type of symmetrical islamic architecture.

It has to do with nature. I wanted to feel the freedom that nature appears to posses. I had experienced so many constraints in the world I came from; I wanted to escape it. I wanted to become free. I wanted to explore my strength. To understand and celebrate the possibilities of the earth in my hands. As I worked with this totally fluid materials, I felt its lack of constraints, its freedom. I wanted it to lead me, to allow the earth that freedom.

I wanted to set it free, to listen to it. I believe that all buildings should be designed and built with sensitivity… designing and building are to me like sculpting. When a sculptor carves in to the rock he listens to the rock telling him what it should become.

Creating a dwellings the same to me; its about understanding the material, the need of the inhabitant, the climate, being in harmony with the environment and, most of all, feeling passion during the process.

At the moment, my ideal house is one which lives in such harmony with its environment, a house that is difficult to notice, like an animal that blends into its surroundings. So many houses appear like warts on our landscape. Only at night, when the lights come on, do you see the extent of development.

Listening to the elements, letting the earth tell me what it wanted to become. Being from the architectural icons of traditional cultures. Listening openly to my inner voices, letting them guide me to achieve coherence and happiness. You must be logged in to post a comment. Paulina Wojciechowska Paulina hard at work.
