James Kuiper harnesses the living, breathing climate that natural buildings produce to create the healthy supportive environments that the delicately-resilient microbial cultures need to thrive.
Like the Ulwazi ECD centre in Delft, the GCU Edu Hub, will be built from natural and sustainable building materials. We’ll be using +- 5000 rammed earth tyres to create the walls with eco brick and glass bottle details, cob, and natural plasters.
Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it took a team of dedicated, talented & passionate humans to pull off a project like Ulwazi Educare.
Laurie first shared her student-build story and the challenges of building with mud on the edge of Hwange National park, Zimbabwe with us in 2014. Their cob home is complete and the gardens are thriving as they live a simple life alongside wildlife.
