Non-stabilized Rammed Earth
Ode to Hemendra Bohra. This would the first rammed earth and bamboo residential structure in Kathmandu, and that too not stabilized. Yes, only good old earth and bamboo! This could be a tipping point in architectural pattern in Kathmandu, as it demonstrate many interested but sckeptical group of people in Nepal who want to go back to natural way of living, but do not know how to! Architect Prabal Thapa has done the design and ABARI has provided technical input. It is however, truly, owner built house. This is the first sample of the wall.
