Projects[ edit ] Anna Heringer: DESI Vocational School, Rudrapur completed Through her projects, Heringer has sought to give local craftsmen and the local community confidence in their use of traditional building methods, preparing them for the future. She also strives to maintain ecological balance, avoiding the detrimental effects of modern architectural methods.
As a result of improvements to the bamboo structures and lashing, it was possible to add a second storey to the building. Brick foundations were used to minimize the effects of moisture on the earthen walls.
The bricks were made by local craftsmen while the remaining construction work was a collaborative effort by the architects, teachers, students and locals.
While local materials, mainly mud and bamboo, were used, structural stability and viability were improved with a masonry foundation and damp-proofing.
No machinery was used in the construction apart from making use of cows for mixing the earth, water and rice straw. The building houses two classrooms, two apartments for the instructors with bathroom and toilets, and includes a student bathroom with toilets and sinks on the ground floor.
Plumbing additions are unusual in mud buildings as they normally require concrete or masonry structures. The project has been seen as having the potential to become a model for Morocco and beyond.All Events & Exhibitions at The Cooper Union Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in , The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.
