More or less. In Brazil, we are using earth to make popular houses, with low cost, but excellent quality. Look for "solocimento" in my country or email me.

hi there.
i know one great fellow who will help u a lot but for that u may have to come to india...
he had good documantation and information and run workshops about mud architecture ...
and teach about how to build arches vaults and domes...
he will teach u how to make compressed stabilised earth blocks and compressed earth walls and foundations...
so u can contact him through hiw website.i think that will solve ur problem..
if it did not work out just tell me i will send u info about that.

You may also want to look at the work of Nader Khalili and his Cal-Earth Institute. I believe there may be some information on him in the Archnet digital library.

Faisal Charradi of Morocco has been heavily involved in this area. He is director of historic buildings in Marrakesh.
