Living Systems, a design-build firm specializing in passive solar design and poured earth construction. Poured earth, sometimes called cast earth, is similar to concrete construction in that a mixture of aggregate and binder are poured into removable forms. Local soils can often be used and the amount of cement reduced compared to conventional concrete. In addition, it’s faster than rammed earth and requires less labor.
