The art of building with Superadobe might have been designed for other worlds, but it’s become a popular and innovative method down here on Earth! Superadobe represents a truly sustainable building technique that fulfills the needs of both people and planet. With simple natural materials and the labor of a few dedicated individuals, barbed-wire and bags of dirt are transformed into magnificent works of architecture. Domes, homes, archways, cisterns, raised beds, walls, and a plethora of other applications, are all possible through this method. During this two weekend workshop series, participants will learn how to construct a circular stem wall, a 10 foot archway, and a serpentine wall with integrated LED glass bottle lights.

Lead instructor Biko Casini is an alumnus of Cal-Earth- The California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture. He is a third-generation brick mason and has dedicated over 16 years of his life to building with natural materials here and abroad and thus has a wealth of knowledge to offer. Participants stand to learn useful and empowering skills from Biko and his assistant instructors during this transformative workshop.

*Architect Nader Khalili originally devised this building method for NASA lunar structures.

Participants are encouraged to bring: closed toed shoes, work clothes, lunch, and good vibes.

Location: The Hive at 2105 St Cyr Ave SE 87106
