To enable and empower people to build their own dwellings using earthen techniques. To revive traditional skills, and to link instigute and vernacular traditions of raw earth construction with the modern technologies of stabilised earth.

Building a segmental dome. This course covers the structural design of vaulted masonry along with integrated principles of construction, and includes hands-on sessions on the construction of arches, vaults and domes.

Learning to use the Auram press. Hands-on – building conical dome. The main research and development is focussed on minimising the use of steel, cement and reinforced cement concrete RCC.

Introduction on Earth Based Technologies. The new facilities aurovillle now being designed to meet the increasing demand for education in earth technologies, and to make a greater impact on affordable, sustainable, climate resilient housing in India and globally.

AVEI will introduce 1-year diploma programs for post-graduate students of architecture and engineering, masonry technicians, and vocational masonry craftsmen.

Designing vaulted structures – practical work. Casting a ferrocement door. Storing ready CSEB for initial curing. The activities of the institute include research and development of earthen technologiestraining and educationpublication and dissemination, and the following services offered within India and abroad: Use the equipment and determine what is missing, ajroville protocols to use the equipment, make tests on different types of soil composition so they can be used in the AV Earth Institute machines.


Most of the technologies developed are mastered and the present research is focussed on alternative stabilizers to cement and alternative waterproofing with stabilized earth, composed of soil, sand, cement, lime, alum and tannin.
