  • H.A.E EARTHEN LANDSCAPE RETREAT IS AN OBJECTIVE STUDY INTO THE MATERIALITY OF AN ALTERNATIVE BUILDING MATERIAL AND ITS ABILITY TO CONVEY COMPREHENSIVELY THE CONCEPT OF FREE FLOWING ADJACENT WALLS. BUT, THIS CONCEPT IS PART ONE OF A TWO PART DIALECTIC DISCUSSION BETWEEN ENCAPSULATED ADJACENT WALLS AND FREE FLOWING ADJACENT WALLS. DISCUSSED WITH-IN THE BOOK ARE THE CONTEXTUAL, ANALYTICAL, STRUCTURAL AND VIRTUAL REALITIES OF THE H.A.E LANDSCAPE RETREAT. THE MAIN BUILDING MATERIAL IS A PRIMITIVE MATERIAL THAT HAS BEEN IN USE FOR DECADES AND IS STILL IN USE TODAY. ITS CALLED RAMMED EARTH, IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY CONSCIOUSNESS BY THE SHEAR AMOUNT OF WASTED BUILDING MATERIALS ON JOB SITES WHERE NORMAL BUILDING METHODS WERE USED. A PRIMITIVE BUILDING MATERIAL LIKE RAMMED EARTH, WILL VIRTUALLY ELIMINATE WASTE ON SITES. THE CAPACITY TO UTILIZE THE EARTH FROM THE SITE IS MADE VISIBLE AND THEREFOR, AN UNDENIABLE CANDIDATE IN FUTURE USE FOR MOST CONSTRUCTION
