Adobe plus/ Martin Azua

The traditional materials used to make adobe, mud and straw, were replaced with plaster and expanded polyester creating a very light material which floats in water and can be used alongside other architectural materials, wall and floor coverings. The colour of the different natural ingredients used, (eggs, nuts, bread), bring the material to life as it transforms and decomposes in a controlled manner.
