Auroville Earth Institute (AVEI)
Main Page Help Recent changes. To respect our Mother Earth, while using its natural resources to build a sustainable future. These technologies are disseminated through training courses, seminars, workshops, manuals and documents. Designing vaulted structures – practical work. To revive traditional skills, and to link ancestral and vernacular traditions of raw earth construction with the modern technologies of stabilised earth. Most of the technologies developed are mastered and the present research is focussed on alternative stabilizers to cement and alternative waterproofing with stabilized earth, composed of soil, sand, cement, lime, alum and tannin.
It is one of the few courses globally which combine structural design of AVD with integrated principles of construction.
The Auroville Earth Institute is currently planning a major initiative for the extension of its educational programs and facilities.
