Mud bricks

Did you know that over 3 billion people in 6 continents live in mud brick built structures. Mud bricks in mt opinion are one of man kinds greatest building materials. Some of the worlds most historical sites such as ancient Babylon were built entirely out of mud bricks, parts of the great wall of china are also constructed out of mud brick.
What really impresses me about mud brick production and construction is the fact that you can have a factory producing bricks right outside of the site. This aspect is extremely eco-friendly.
Below is a link to a company called Envirobrick which create 100% environmentally friendly bricks and they construct some rather impressive structures.
