Title: Regrounding Contemporary Rammed-Earth Systems
Authors: Poirier, Brian

Abstract: The process of modernization has left in its wake a variety of models and technologies that function comparably to the objectives of modernity's own expectations. The rammed-earth building material is one of these instances. Rammed-earth is resurging in contemporary U.S. architectural design and construction to serve its original function, yet there is a negative distortion involved in this process. A model for rammed-earth from architecture, engineering thermodynamics, and computation is proposed to address this phenomenon.
