Clay builder with sustainable ambitions

We’re in an old limestone house in the village of Kastlösa on the island of Öland, Sweden. In the attic, Hanna Nilsson is smacking clay onto a brick. As a recently graduated architect, she dreamed of helping the construction sector to be more sustainable. And that’s exactly what happened. But not in the way she imagined.
