Earthbag Construction

The money raised from the SL workshops conducted in May for TASL and Honeywell was used to complete the construction of the Visitor’s centre at ProtoVillage.  A completely eco friendly design, the centre has been made from recycled bags filled with earth.  The exterior finish has been with traditional lime mortar mix.  The centre is designed to temporarily house the 10 resident members who are working on developing the prototype of a model village.  It is also doubling up as an educational and information centre.  It will eventually be the information dessimination centre, the office space as well as a shop which will sell the produce made in ProtoVillage.  Thanks to Masood and Anant and Madhavi from Bead Studio, Koramangala who made this possible
