We used traditional Mayan using techniques to construct this building, and all the materials were found on the land: stones, saskab (a local kind of earth used in construction), red earth, water, wood, vines, and manure. The material which accumulates in the large chambers below is then composted, thus closing the cycle of nutrients.
