In June 2015 Louis Mayes will be travelling to Ghana with a team of volunteers to build a house that he has designed. They will be using the local earth as the primary building material. This follows a competition to ‘redesign the African mud house’ run by a Ghanaian charity. The main aim of the build will be to create a prototype that provides an economical, environmentally friendly and straightforward way to create house that can be used across Ghana.
