Abstract: Brick which is a by-product of clay soils can be found in the historical architecture of any civilization due to its affordability, accessibility, recyclability and social cultural connections especially in the hot-dry climates of the world. Its popularity as a construction material is still evident today with over a third of the global population currently living in earthen structures. Yet low cost housing provision, especially in developing countries is plagued by the ever increasing cost of building systems (technology, materials, transport, labour, etc.) and high demand for affordable housing for the low-income group.
