Nowadays the use of authentically, natural building materials for the preservation of monuments ends, where moisture and steam arises: in climatically challenging rooms like baths, kitchens, saunas, SPAs By reference to two of the oldest steam bathes of Morocco we can try a more scientific view on the problem by focussing this kind of ancient architecture, which presents us the capability to protect earth building units by compressed, hydrophobized lime plasters. Reported are the preliminary… Expand
