Experimentation with an plaster material that represents an alternative to cement screed and concrete topping

 On one hand, the enormous consumption of concrete worldwide, on the other, the production of 30 millions tons of demolition waste per year in the Ile-de-France region. Given these observations, we suggest to consider using these urban deposits as materials to develop alternatives to the traditional cement screed.

In the context of the construction project of a workshop-agency in Montreuil, involving the conception of a new wooden frame building and the partial demolition of existing pavilions, we aim to experiment different types of floors made from materials coming from the site — uncontaminated excavated soil, crushed concrete and brick, recycled plaster casts. Earth, abundantly available, and plaster, infinitely recyclable, will be employed as binding materials which require far less energy to produce than cement.

We imagine the manufacturing on site as an opportunity to create interactions and increase transmission between different fields such as demolition, recycling, masonry, plaster and earth craftsmanship.
