A rammed earth wall forming part of the entrance building to the Eden Project in Cornwall, England. Many aspects of the Eden Project champion environmental sustainability and due to their thermal mass, rammed earth walls fit in with these environmental aspirations.

After five year, the corner of the wall already shows surface damage. Although given the thickness of the walls this probably isn't too significant.
