Henke Schreieck - Kufstein university building, Kufstein 2001. A unique double facade of operable full height terrace-like wood doors behind a glazed skin with operable vent panels provides optimal thermal performance while allowing classrooms to feel open to the exterior. Depending on the time of day, the glazing either reflects the surroundings or accentuates the inner timber structure. Photos (C) Margherita Spiluttini

Robert Felber with Martin Rauch - House M, Rankweil 1996. The load bearing, 2’-0” thick rammed earth walls are made from the dirt dug for the excavation of the project. The process involves Rauch’s pisee-technique, where the “silt and earthen mixture is compressed periodically in horizontal layers of roughly 12cm thickness in the mould. The crumbly, soil-damp mixture is poured in layers and is compressed with air compression beaters and vibration rolls. After every third layer, a mortar layer is mounted on the mould edge and also compressed into the mixture.” In the case of this house, the rammed-earth is left exposed, displaying to granular, porous mixture of earth and mortar chips.
