"2011 Map of Earthen Heritage in the European Union"

European Map

Editors: Mariana Correia, Letizia Pasquale and Saverio Mecca

An European Map of 60x90 cm, concerning Earthen Building Cultures in the European Union, created with the contribution of more than 50 authors.

This European cartography was made according to historical and vernacular heritage (built before 1970) that is still present in the European territory. Four categories are identified to represent a wide variety of earthen building cultures: Half-timber with earth, Adobe, Rammed earth and Cob.

A large number of experts from each country have collaborated to identify and verify the location of earthen architecture heritage. This atlas, although innovative, is still a work in progress. Thus, the editors expect that this initiative will be followed by new research where information is missing or incomplete.

 

This 2011 map of earthen heritage in the European Union is one of the results of Terra [In]cognita – Earthen Architecture in Europe research project, developed in the framework of Culture 2007-2013 Programme of the European Union.
This project has been funded with the support of the European Commission. The map reflects the views only of the authors and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use, which may be made of the information contained therein.
