‘Earthmade Gymnasium’ brings forth the value in local and vernacular materials and construction techniques. The focus is on the strategic use of materials available in close proximity, as alternatives to mainstream construction materials emulated in the village. Further, the project engages multiple passive environmental strategies for thermal comfort, optimal daylight and ventilation to achieve low carbon footprint. The LCA calculations indicate that the building has an emission factor of 322 Kg CO2e/m2. The construction techniques used are an interpretation of conventional building techniques known to the locals, for the ease of transferability.
