‘Earth built’ or ‘breathable houses’ are supposedly eco-friendly to produce, because they use readily available, natural materials and building methods. Homes made from mud have been used for thousands of years across many cultures, but they’ve been traditionally created by men.
In this episode of the ecological alarm clock that is Extinction Update, we travel to Mosorin, Serbia to meet Dragana Kojičić, an architect who for the past 10 years has been developing the Centre for Earth Architecture, a group reviving these ancient traditionally male-dominated techniques and teaching younger generations of women the earth built method.
