DOING is a practice to develop and implement projects and ideas.
Working with existing logistics and streams of waste materials (such as: earth from excavations, demolitions, quarries waste, industry by-products...),
in order to transform and reuse them, specially for earth construction.
Building a local circular chain for earth materials production
and logistics supply.
Researching, characterizing and developing earth mixes,
in order to answer the specific needs of each project.
Consulting earth construction projects and supporting building sites.
Leading workshops and training teams
Behind DOING is me, a portuguese architect, Nuno Vasconcelos.
After 5 years living and working with multidisciplinary teams in Porto, I moved to Berlin in 2012 where I started to develop my own research about EARTH BUILDING, specially RAMMED EARTH, working with Jörg Depta from Lehmbauwerk.de.
Nowadays, living between Berlin and Portugal, I continue this learning process about raw earth and sustainable construction, passing among others by "BaseHabit" in Austria or the XII World Congress "Terra Lyon 2016" in France. But also doing and experimenting new approaches with raw earth, in different contexts and collaborations, giving special focus to projects with a social, environmental and educational component.
