The application of the systemic approach in the field of monumental architectural heritage has led to a Systemic Method, which allows us to structure and integrate, without repetitions or absences, the cadence of all the necessary operations in order to do a proper intervention in a building, from its knowledge until the selection of criteria on the architectural project. But earth architecture has a different history. The main is that the restoration of monumental architecture has a tradition of more than four centuries that brings endless ideas about applicable experiences and intervention in earthen architecture does not exceed three or four decades. The previous scheme is not useful and it is necessary to design another one, although following the same principles. The purpose of this paper is to propose a new systemic method for the earthen architec-ture that operates in a similar way to what is explained about monumental architecture.
