This afternoon, OHP met with members of the Westside Preservation Alliance at Riconcito de Esperanza's Casa de Cuentos. WPA member Graciela Sánchez then gave us a tour of the center's rammed earth structure, built in 2016 and home to Mujer Artes. Also pictured are WPA members Dr. Antonia Castañeda and Bea Moreno. #mujerartes#rammedearth#compressedearth#westside#wpa#preservation
Some last minute touches on the presentation for tomorrow...
A 1/2 day workshop on earthen construction held at Les Grands Atelier produced this. Amàco regularly holds workshops in the studio focusing on an innovative pedagogy of experimentation and understanding of the matter as a way to think and build differently. www.amaco.org #rammedearth#pouredearth#compressedearth#adobe
