While construction of the house from the “Earth Bricks” was progressing, the Great East Japan Earthquake happened on March 11 in 2011. Huge tsunami attacked the north-east coast destroying many houses on its away. Merciless wreckage and the soil containing salt from the sea water were left after this disaster.
Magnesium oxide from the sea water origin is blended into an “Earth Bricks.” Although it cannot be used as farmland soil any longer, the soil which has absorbed salt after tsunami can be used for production of the «earth bricks” effectively.
We would like to apply the know-how of an “Earth Bricks” structure, and develop “Earth Bricks” manufacture as part of post-disaster housing recovery program.
