Rammed Earth Slims Down - Pre-Cast Rammed Earth Responds To The Modern Built Environment
Depending on the epoch and the thousand year floods, nature can lithify layers of sedimentary rock that are deep and highly contrasting, or pencil thin. It can take a million years to build a rock five feet thick.

Mona Heavy Metal Retaining Wall and Oyster Mausoleum. Project led by Ross Brewin and Kit Wise from MADA (Monash) and created by students. A rammed earth wall to represent the indigenous soils of Tasmania topped with crushed dolerite. Striations formed by recycled concrete, crushed oyster shells and black oxide. When the oysters used to filter the toxins from the Derwent River die they are encased in concrete or resin and inserted into the mausoleum wall. Photo Bo Wong // Design Satellite
