Wattle & Daub: Anti-seismic construction Handbook
The aim of this construction handbook is to provide theoretical and technical support for use by building engineers, construction workers and all those who decide to build their own house.
The handbook is divided into three main parts:
1 – Earthquakes: how they origin, how they affect houses and a definition of anti-seismic houses.
2 – Raw materials: all the main raw materials used to build wattle and daub constructions (wood, bamboo or similar materials and earth).
