Conservation of earth structures
This companion volume to 'Conservation of Brick' provides a fundamental understanding of the processes of repair and reconstruction of earth structures. The technical aspects of the study are treated from the non-scientist point of view to develop a working understanding of this relatively new field. This important subject is rarely recognized, but many peoples worldwide have built, lived in and treasured earth structures. Their cultures have evolved with them and, therefore, a great part of the human environment has been shaped by earths and earth building. The conservation of earth structures is, therefore, not merely a neglected facet of the vernacular architecture; it is bound to the artistic core of living communities. Earth construction and its conservation, like other 'green' issues, draws a dedicated level of commitment from its aficionados. The problem of conservation, however, is far wider. Planning authorities, research organizations and owners are using broad-ranging, sometimes desperate, measures to retain a meaningful part of the huge heritage of earth structures world-wide. John Warren is a Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies, University of York and is an Architect and Conservator with over 30 years experience in private practice, in the UK and abroad. His conservation work has extended as far afield as India. At home he has been responsible for, among many others, the recovery of Horace Walpole's mansion, Strawberry Hill. He was also a member of the British Standards Institution Committee on Historic Buildings and is currently Chairman of ICOMOS UK World Heritage Committee.
