Abstract

Earthen buildings come in a vast variety of shapes and sizes, made from materials like fired clay, compressed dirt and a mixture of clay, sand, straw and water. People have been using various forms of earth to build structures for centuries. From underground green homes to other futuristic green houses. This paper is included 6 diverse examples of structures made from earthen materials in Iran that used Iranian architecture in their works. The buildings are included special mortar called Sarooj in their construction. The result has shown the earthen buildings create safer, more people-friendly buildings. The earthen buildings are very low in embodied energy, and extremely comfortable to live in. With captivating discussion, Earth Architecture showcases the beauty and simplicity of one of humankind's most evolved and sophisticated building technologies in Iran and the world.
