Wisdoms and methods which inspires and guides us on our journey of collective building with natural materials.


Nature  the oldest and the wisest is pure and pristine and it calls for respect while used in a building. Using natural materials from the local context is one of the best ways to come to terms with sustainable buildings.

Natural materials , which have not undergone major transition from its original state can be easily used in building. They do not cause any form of natural harm during construction either to man or the environment infact they help us heal. The beauty of natural materials is it can be played and be reused innumerable number of times. Making the building immortal.


Community oriented is a participatory approach, it is one of the most fun and interactive method of   building home.  Building with neighbor’s, friends and family,  inviting them to play, dances , sing transforms a physical building into a dwelling because it involves gifting their energies. So we create the spirit of home with hands of community.It is of great significance that one participates in understanding, designing and building ones home. This process will give them a better understanding of the spaces, the feel and texture of the materials ,how to deal with improvements  all by themselves. Moreover it helps in building what is just needed for the dwellers and nothing more.

As each participant breathes, the building  absorbs it and in return  transforms itself from mere natural walls to a respiring natural home.


Cooperative games, circular dances and sharing circles are our catalyzers to be able to work as one in harmony. Element games is a medium  to connect natural building and community building. These are set of meditative games which helps understanding all the elements of natural building process inspired by the shamans in Brazil. The idea is to open and spend some quality time , concentrating  a specific sense towards each element. While we are connecting with elements as a group of people we also connect with ourselves and with our community.
