Rammed earth construction at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.

It’s not done till everyone can sit down

The MudWorks wall and sail have mellowed to an elephant gray since the forms began coming off on Thursday, but the project isn’t done yet. Lots of finishing details remain. GSD student Nick Rivard, a furniture maker in the Urban Design program, will be in the wood shop fashioning smooth bench seats out of redwood. He and Loeb Fellow Anne-Marie Lubenau took off in a pick-up truck from Zipcar over the weekend to purchase supplies at a nearby lumber yard.

In other news, the MudHall blog is starting to see some serious online traffic. The rammed earth project has caught the attention of the Architect’s Newspaper, which is sending a reporter to Harvard today to write about the project.
