Abstract This research aimed to identify planning and building methods of contemporary earthen architecture that can also be reliable in Korean context. Thus, this research compared and analyzed 21 earth building norms and regulations of 7 countries and regions across 4 continents.: ARSO(African Regional Standard Organization), India, Sri Lanka (above Asia), Germany, France (above Europe), New Zealand and Australia (above Oceania). As an analysis framework, the contents of all norms and regulations were categorized according to the construction process of a building, and according to the life cycle phase of an earthen architecture. In addition, all contents were reclassified into a total of 48 subcategories based on technical elements. Above all, it is quite certain that an earth building technology system coordinated for our society can be established by combining legitimate contemporary earth building technologies and techniques in other societies with earth building technology developed in ours. Then, it is imperative to have a production and supply system that enable us to intuitively convince the performance and quality of earth building materials and elements such as French and German classification systems. Lastly, there’s no doubt that contemporary earth building technology is not limited to existing construction methods for structural elements, but is evolving by converging with other construction technologies and expanding its value and scope. This means that earth building technology, which had been stagnant while reinforced concrete and steel dominated the mainstream of architecture, is beating its own pathway again.
