Eco sand-bag house at the Vienkoči Park, Latvia
Latvia

The sand-bag house includes various eco building ideas. Its central part is built from recycled used bags filled with sand and clay mixture. The outer walls of the bags are edged with turf, but internal walls are plastered with clay. Wood logs and bottles of wine are used in the construction of the lobby. The wine bottles were used to make stained glass, thus giving extra light in the day time. At night the stained glass serves as a kind of luminous body of the Vienkoči park landscape. The inner room is arranged with dugout furniture and chandelier of wine bottles.

The main emphasis of building the eco house is usage of local natural materials and recycled materials. Material costs for such house is relatively low, but the construction work is heavy. The house is an experiment to see how this idea is able to live in climatic conditions of Latvia. The new sand-bag house not only improves the exposure of the Vienkoči Park, but also makes visitors think about natural and alternative ideas.

Smilšu maisu māja - naturālās būvniecības eksperiments Vienkoču Parkā

Vienkoču parkā visam cauri vijas netradicionālās, ekoloģiskās un dabīgās lietas, kas parka apmeklētājiem liek uz dažām lietām paraudzīties mazliet no citas puses.
2008. gada rudenī radās doma pamēģināt izveidot kaut ko pamatīgāku un, protams, ko tādu, kas Latvijā vēl nav bijis. Ideja radās par smilšu maisu māju (zemes maisu māju). Ziemas periodā (attīstot šo ideju) šis projekts apauga ar vēl dažādām citām naturālās būvniecības idejām, kas arī tika realizētas būvniecības gaitā. Smilšu maisu celtniecība vairāk ir pazīstama dienvidu zemēs, bet Latvijā līdz šim neviens neko tādu nebija mēģinājis darīt.

Šī smilšu maisu māja sevī apvieno gan vietējo dabas materiālu, gan otrreizējo materiālu izmantošanu. Par pašu būvniecību gan jāsaka, ka celtniecība nav dārga, bet ļoti darbietilpīga gan. Ja tās tapšanā nebūtu palīdzējuši čakli talcinieki, tad šī celtne, iespējams, šodien Vienkoču parkā nebūtu ieraugāma.

Skatoties uz smilšu mājas fasādi, redzama ir tikai piebūves daļa, kas būvēta no malkas, vīna pudelēm un māla. No centrālās smilšu maisu daļas redzama tikai virsotne. Visu māju un piebūves jumtu klāj zemes un velēnu kārta.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
