Rammed Earth Pavilion, Singapur

Rammed Earth Pavilion
Material studies. Edition #2

Buildner Architecture Competitions

The Competition
Buildings constructed of rammed earth are found on almost every continent on the planet, created by compacting moistened subsoil which, when dried, forms hard and dense walls, bricks, or other structures.

Rammed earth is considered a green alternative to concrete, often used in the construction of eco-houses, and is becoming increasingly popular with environmentally-conscious architects.

The Rammed Earth Pavilion competition is part of a series exploring the unique benefits of different building materials. Participants are tasked with designing a pavilion to be constructed of rammed earth in a location of their choosing. The pavilion will host an exhibition on the material, the contents of which should be included in submitted designs.

The Rammed Earth Pavilion can be designed as either a temporary or permanent structure but should be no more than 50sqm. What is important is for design to be as creative as possible in their use and exploration of this ancient and sustainable building material.

Competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required.
Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum).
Correspondence with organizers must be conducted in English;
All information submitted by participants must be in English.
