Sustainable architecture is an exciting and important field, with many people reviving traditional methods of building and others creating innovations to established practices. Kelly Hart, webmaster of the popular website www.greenhomebuilding.com, posts text and photos featuring what he discovers from around the world.

Natural Building in Korea

Professor Sunny Cai, who teaches architectural design at a college in Beijing, China, sent me some wonderful photos of traditional earthen buildings he photographed while on a recent trip to Korea. Sunny is especially interested in various forms of rammed earth, so I presume that these mostly represent that form. The stone structure appears to have been mortared with earth.
