Comments Off on Roswag Seiler and Pakistani Locals Hand-build a School from Cob, Bamboo and Mud

The Tipu Sultan Merkez School in Punjab , Pakistan has a new sustainable building that was designed by German architects Roswag Seiler and built by locals. Using locally sourced and low-impact materials, the shelter was fashioned from cob, bamboo and mud. Cob is widely used in Pakistan, and is a material made from clay, sand, water and straw. The concoction can easily be mixed by bulls, and once set, works as a natural insulator that keeps humidity at bay and interiors cool.

The Union Station Alliance ’s wining proposal is a LEED Gold restoration that will be anchored by a 130 room hotel, a retail center, public plaza, and a train hub connecting Amtrak with regional trains and buses.
