Urban Strawbale: School in Montreuil, Paris


The Straw Bale School in Montreuil, Paris, will most probably be the place for the ESBG 2015 (yet the final decision is not made now). It is a best-practice-example for an urban straw bale building and illustrates one of the main topics of the European Straw Bale Gathering 2015: STRAW GOES URBAN.
