Humans have excavated the earth for building material since the beginning of the Holocene Period. Excavation has proven useful for keeping the building cost affordable and incorporating local materials. Excavation, however, leaves a site scarred and often unusable. The excavated areas are also susceptible to erosion in their raw marred state, and this exacerbated the scarring. The Inhabitable Scar embraces the scar and proposes both an educational example of earth construction and a solution to this unavoidable consequence of earth construction and a solution to this unavoidable consequence of earth construction. The Inhabitable Scar investigates the relationship to ground by developing an embedded classroom space for the students to experience and learn about the various earth constructions. The project takes the excavated material to make bricks that not only hold back the earth but provide seating for the classroom spaces. Students will experience relationship to ground through undulating terraces composed of the local earth. The local earth material is also utilized in various construction methods including poured earth. The walls are composed in such a way to divide the spaces for multiple learning scenarios and also for maximum ventilation. The project accepts the scar and makes it a useful learning tool to enhance the students’ experience. The budget for the entire project estimates to $8775.
