A look at rammed earth

In my quest for finding materials other than concrete and steel to base my project on, rammed earth seemed like an interesting option. Sustainable and beautiful, and in climates that are not too wet, durable. I have been looking at a couple of nice buildings mainly constructed with rammed earth, shown in the pictures below, but unfortunately there are not that many great modern rammed earth buildings in Europe.
