This book explores the history and significance of rammed earth construction in Central Europe, particularly in Switzerland, using historical examples to investigate the potential of this building technique for contemporary construction. Rammed earth has material advantages, such as its strength, durability, and non-combustible nature, while potential disadvantages, such as on-site weather dependency, can be circumvented by using prefab elements. It is ecologically sustainable and completely recyclable as well. This pioneering and comprehensive study contributes to safeguarding existing architectural heritage while also providing a foundation for further research.
