The project aims to investigate the use of unfired clay bricks in supporting structures. The unfired clay bricks are sensitive to moisture. In light of this, this study will aim to evaluate the moisture dependent strength-properties of the unfired clay bricks. The study will also contain concrete proposals on how the building envelope can be built with unfired clay bricks. The study will give several suggestions on how the unfired clay bricks, should be handled as a building material. This includes how the structure is protected from the weather in the construction phase.
