The biggest library dedicated to straw construction

The partners of the UP STRAW project have created a library of more than 400 publications dedicated to building with straw. It is for everyone - amateurs, construction professionals, promoters, scientists or those who simply want to know more.

The publications cover all subjects associated with building with straw, i.e. regulatory aspects, construction techniques, technical and environmental performance, fire security and acoustics and scientific publications. They gather publications from every country in the world. Most of the publications are in English.

The publications are classified by subject:

  • Building codes - Technical assessment
  • Mechanical Resistance - Stability
  • Safety in case of fire
  • Hygiene Health Environment
  • Safety in case of fire
  • Protection against noise
  • Energy economy - Heat retention
  • Sustainable use of renewable resources
  • Hygrothermal properties
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Acoustics
  • Renovation with straw
  • Durability
  • Loadbearing - Strength of materials
  • Technical books and guides
  • Non-technical information
  • Feedback and Straw Model Buildings
  • Fire reaction

The library is laid out as follows: the folders and sub-folders are in the left-hand column, the titles, authors and publication dates are in the centre column and the information and summary for the selected item are given in the right-hand column.

The library is hosted on the ZOTERO platform, a free reference management tool that allows the user to manage bibliographical data and documents such as websites, videos, scientific articles, books and PDFs.

The library can be accessed via a web browser, but the data can also be synchronised to your computer in the same way as Dropbox or OneDrive. This library is always being updated. Feel free to check it regularly and let us know about documents that it doesn't include yet.
