Shengbang will introduce the basic principles of cob houses and what changes cob could possibly bring to us in Taiwan. He will touch upon what cob (and, in general, permaculture) means to him, and present different projects already completed or still ongoing in Taiwan currently.
A restless heart is never easy to be calmed, until the earth does it with miracles. Sheng Bang started his career playing with mud in 2018, but now he is one of the most passionate advocates for Taiwan’s natural building field and has led several workshops in southern Taiwan, specializing in cob. Having worked indifferent fields from tech engineer, piano teacher to natural builder, Sheng Bang has a way of integrating various elements tactfully into his work which leads to unique techniques and styles. With his great love of permaculture, he believes natural building is a solution to realize residence justice in Taiwan, as well as a friendlier sustainable future.
