The main objective of this research is to develop a parametric tool to help architects modeling virtual earthbag domes from ideation to construction phase. This challenge has been addressed by adopting an experimental methodology that explores parametric generative design with the use of visual programming language VPL.

In this paper we present the development of a tool for the ideation level including features that allow for the calculation of material quantification.

The usability of the tool was validated by earthbag constructors and architects.

I loved this book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in earthbag construction. It is concise, detailed, easy to follow, and beautifully illustrated.

I want to congratulate you for being successful in all of these areas and for creating such an extremely well organized and useful guide to earthbag building.

I have not seen any of the techniques written any more precisely or accurately than you have here. Nor do I believe that you have forgotten or overlooked any key concepts. I believe this is a first class instruction manual on earthbag construction and I have learned quite a few things from it myself.

I love the way you have seamlessly incorporated internet-based resources into your instructions. I think this approach will be wildly successful and extremely helpful to the reader. Best of luck, Owen. I look forward to seeing it in print and putting it to use in the field.

Many homes will be built from it. I will be referring to it often in my own projects and look forward with keen interest to forthcoming titles from this talented researcher.Together with her partner Doni Kiffmeyer, she co-developed over the last nine years the "Flexible Form Rammed Earth Technique" of building affordably with earthbags and has taught the subject and contributed her expertise to several books on natural building.

The heat generation from cement factories can also be reduced as this technology uses only five percent cement. The usability of the tool was validated by earthbag constructors and architects.
