Primitive Materials

  • Not the most helpful of marketing campaigns
  • Primitive will no doubt be jumped on by the violets who will have a field day and trounce the greens
  • GBE Brainstorm ‘Primitive’
    • Simple
      • Un-sophisticated
        • No mixtures of natural and technical
        • Cradle to Cradle principle
      • Uncomplicated
        • Freedom from chemistry
        • Freedom from plastics
          • Freedom from all membranes
          • Vapour open, Hygroscopic, Breathing
        • Freedom from adhesives
          • Not conglomerates, Not composites
        • Only as technical as we need it to be
      • Raw
        • Natural
          • Planet made not man-made
            • Laid down over centuries: Stone and fossil carbon
            • Laid down in seconds: Lava, Pumice
          • Grown
            • Plant, grass or tree based
            • Fungus, mycelium
            • Animal
          • Of simple man-made manufacture
            • With minimal Heat/Pressure
            • In the round
              • (not debarked, cut, profiled, sliced or peeled)
            • Untreated
              • (no preservatives against rot, insect, fire)
            • Unseasoned
              • (not pre-dried, permits warping and drying shrinkage)
            • Unfinished
              • (no protective coatings, stains, waxes)
            • Historic
              • Prehistoric (but not fossil based)
                • Of a primitive culture
              • Indigenous
                • Evolved in that place
                • Suited to that place
                • not ex/imported to an unsympathetic climate, needing special care
              • Traditional
                • Tried, tested and successful in its local climate
                  • move it to a different climate and it probably won’t work properly
                • Survived the test of time
                  • But more diverse than UK traditional?
                • Taking care of local climate issues
                • Taking care of internal climate
                  • Good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
                • Probably not Modern Methods of Construction (MMC)
                  • Prefabricated, Offsite, Preassembled,
                  • But probably not concrete panels
                • Possibly Innovative Methods of Construction (IMC)
                  • (other stuff, probably not of UK origin)
                  • Innovative reinterpretation of traditional:
                    • Pre-dried, pre-cured, pre-patinated,
                  • Or even primitive
