dome construction with adobe bricks

Our third workshop was held in June 2011 in the complex "meta-com" in the surroundings of Anydroi village, close to Paleochora Chania Crete. We built a dome of adobe bricks under the supervision of Professor Gernot Minke.

The course included theory and practice on following issues:

- manufacture of mud-bricks with wooden molds
- dome construction with mud-bricks
- exterior waterproof plaster

For the realization of the project we had to create in advance 3,000 mud-bricks of particular shape, which were used in the construction of the dome and the floor.
