Straw Architecture


Try and blow this house down you big bad wolf [article]

In every industry there seems to be these areas that are frequently studied, discussed and researched that go overlooked by those who don't share the same practice. Straw Bale Construction isn't a new form of construction it's just not the most common.

It has many pros:
  • Typically a local product, which cuts down on fuel cost
  • When plastered over it has a higher fire rating than the majority of other materials (believe it or not)
  • The leftover material would typically be burnt, which (for obvious reasons) is not good
  • Construction cost per square foot is lower
  • Manufacturing cost is more efficient
  • It's a sustainable material
  • Increases energy efficiency (cools and insulates better)
  • From a design perspective can be an interesting material in comparison
As the article demonstrates and further imagery will support, this is an amazing alternative to our typical building components. It's unfortunate that topics like this aren't more common knowledge. Lets share our ideas and expand the realms of possibilities.
