More about this Straw Bale House

As part of the event “Land/Life/Today”, this straw bale sculpture with a tunnel for children was erected in summer 2014 together with workshop participants and members of ravelsbach.kultur using the CUT technique. Such playgrounds for children (and adults) are ideal for conveying an understanding of natural (renewable) materials (NAWAROs) and thus for a sustainable future.
