Abstract: Nowadays, reinvent our designing architecture way is essential in the resource scarcity context. Taking into account resource means to define life cycle analysis. Students from Toulouse school of architecture and bachelor students from EEAM (European material school) in Albi in France, studied an alternative solution for plaster manufacture from aggregates waste, glass recycling waste substitutes the sand and fibbers composed of wood recycling.
This paper analyses this pedagogical experiment in three parts:
- Resource scarcity and ecological transition.
- Alternatives approach.
- Plaster feedback.
Pedagogical experimentation results are, on the one hand, the pedagogy approach of alternative materials with low environmental impact. On the other hand, advantages and limits are identified.

Key words: Building material, alternative material, pedagogical experimentation, Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), raw material resource, environmental transition.
