The Strawbale Technology

The strawbale technology is one of the oldest construction techniques. Civilisation advances gradually phased out natural methods and organic materials. The brick became a synonym of reliability and safety in opposition to high-density wood housing which was the cause of ever-spreading fires and created real danger. Nowadays, a post-modern approach to construction techniques is becoming more and more popular. The influence of complicated technological processes on environment, huge losses of energy and resources, together with high maintenance and utilisation costs have brought humanity to the search of solutions which prove to be simpler and less energy-consuming. Strawbale as a technology in bio-construction is, in short, a wooden construction filled with straw bales and plastered with clay.
