Earth Architecture: Endorsing the Future of Urban Culture

Commitment by

Daw‘an Mud Brick Architecture Foundation

In 2012, Daw'an Mud Brick Architecture Foundation (the Foundation) committed to facilitating the architectural rehabilitation of the local building traditions, neglected irrigation networks, and associated hand crafts in Hadramut, Yemen through training programs and community outreach. Over two years, the Foundation will work with the local community to develop human skills, technical knowledge, and material resources. Collaborating with Yemeni and Hadrami building disciplines, the Foundation's work will foster and disseminate sophisticated building technology and design knowledge. International architects who have shown interest in working with the Foundation will be invited to design new buildings in earth materials, create workshops, and participate in training on site.
