At the construction site called “360 degrees” in Pellegrino Parmense (Pr), where NbB is building a home for Paola and Luca, a seminar was held by our friend architect and craftman Emanuele Cavallo, who talked about and physically demonstrated how to use earth as material for our houses. The purpose of the seminar was to present the capability of a material largely used in the history of architecture and by man and which is still used today. Clay guarantees the realization of healthy settings and can comply with the current and inevitable energy-efficient applications and is a natural material par excellence, considered as “our third skin”, which very well embraces straw walls as well.
Participation in the seminar equaled 8 credits for architects who were able to mix learning with pleasure all in one enjoyable day. One of our ounders, Giacomo Mencarini, introduced the event.
