Bilge Isik: Stabilized earth construction (February 14, 1997)01:16:35

Bilge Isik demonstrates the ubiquity of earth brick, and rammed earth construction. She describes her development of a new gypsum mixture for stabilized earth construction, and describes construction with this formula. This mixture has several advantages, such as reducing shrinkage, and preventing moisture penetration in walls. It also cures quite a bit faster than traditional rammed earth mixtures, and requires earth with a lower clay content.
