What is the Center for Earth Building, and where is it located? The Center for Earth Building was established in 2021 as a hub for research and education on natural building materials and techniques. It is located on a farm in Dobrava pri Škocjanu 26. An old, abandoned barn has been converted into a multifunctional building with a project space on the ground floor and a shared dormitory and toilet facilities in the attic. The farmyard becomes a workspace and social area during events.

Since its founding, the Center has hosted more than 15 workshops, two international workshops, four exhibitions, and a multi-day festival. At the Center, we have built two pavilions and are developing a system for modular construction with rammed earth.
