basehabitat International Summer School
The summer school offers practical know-how in the use of natural building materials like earth and bamboo. Every other year about 100 participants and experts from across the globe come together in Altmünster to work and learn together.
basehabitat wants to promote earth and bamboo as excellent materials for sustainable architecture. Earthen and bamboo architecture has not only a long tradition in human settlement, but it also offers many advantages for contemporary architecture. BASEhabitat wants to foster the consideration of socio-cultural, economical and ecological aspects in the architectural design and construction.
It is necessary to establish a global network and enforce exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of earthen and bamboo architecture.
The way they do:
- Learning by doing
- Practical workshops on building with earth and bamboo
- Theory classes on sustainable architecture
- Networking with people from all around the globe
