Brick in Historic Constructions: Raw or Cooked?

In Paris, Elsa Ricaud, 2012 RMHP Fellow and expert in raw-earth construction materials, participated in the École de Chaillot’s 10thannual Journée d’étude on May 17, 2019, revealing some of the secrets surrounding historic uses of the materiel, whether in its raw or kiln-fired form.

Elsa is responsible for a class given by the École de Chaillot, a class which is also offered in Morocco, on restoration techniques for built heritage in earthen materials. She also teaches at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Versailles in its master’s-level research program “Architecture et ses territoires”. Elsa is associate at the Sunmetron architectural firm in Paris.
