Dr Christian Schweitzer, Vedic Architect, recently presented the Master Builder System of construction in which Layer-pour, made of small, expanded balls of clay mixed with cement and sand, is layered into a mold. Speaking in MERU, Holland, Dr Schweitzer explained that the resulting wall elements can be used to make prefabricated wall elements that make it feasible to build a whole school in a week. This system is thus a central element in a programme to build Invincibility Schools and a range of other buildings, according to principles of Vedic Architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, which will be the foundation for invincible peace and progress to be established in every country.

This ancient technology uses the highest quality of natural, healthy clay, formed into small balls that expand to five times their original size when baked at very high temperatures. The great strength of the resulting material makes it weight-bearing so that three storeys can be built without steel supports, as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda requires. It is lightweight, it absorbs and regulates humidity, and it is highly insulating, fire-resistant, and frost-proof. Further, Dr Schweitzer announced, 'You can cast this material in any form you like.'

These Master Builder wall elements can have ornamentation built into their forms. They cost EUR 130 per square metre, compared to EUR 399 per square metre for normal masonry walls that also require steel supports, making the cost 1/3 to 1/4 of that for a normal wall. The forms are produced with lasers, so they are very precise—to within 1 millimetre. They arrive at the site already made. Each form is lifted from the truck by a crane and lowered directly into its place on a prepared foundation, allowing for a very clean building site. Forms are then joined together and gaps between them are filled. They can be made with different designs of windows and doors cut into them, so that builders can use them to create many different sizes and styles of buildings

'We have a return now to having really beautiful homes for everyone, very inexpensively,' Dr Schweitzer said. 'This is an extraordinary breakthrough.'
