Abstract

One of the major indices of measuring underdevelopment in a country is in the area of housing. Two major factors are responsible for this development. First is the financial strength of the people and the second is the poor level of awareness about cheaper and more energy conserving alternative building materials. This paper examines the potentials that lie in the stabilized and compressed earth brick as compared to concrete blocks as well as local adobe and mud bricks. The paper suggests the use of housing cooperative schemes by locals to solve their housing problems.
