Building with Bare Hands

Handmade Mud Bricks

Handmade Mud Bricks

There is a local farmer in a remote village of Thailand building the most ecological houses using handmade clay bricks and recycled wine bottles as ‘glass-blocks’, with his bare hands. I found out that he will be engaged to build a small library facility for the community project and I was asked to look at his sketches – which was close to none. It has always been one of my wildest dreams that one day I will also go to one of the furthest village and help to build schools or playgrounds (like a superhero architect) and perhaps with my bare hands.

So I decided to put his design into CAD drawings. But honestly, he probably does not really need one… but I feel somehow nearer to my dream…
