Soil is a building material widely used in Kinshasa and Kongo Central regions. Its exploitation is generally artisanal. Soils extracted are largely used for the manufacture of wood-fired bricks, with consequent deforestation problems (Mango-Itulamya, 2015). In order to limit the production energy cost and to produce a sustainable building material, the use of raw earth bricks seems to be a solution. Six areas containing important soil deposits have been selected: Kinshasa, Mbanza Ngungu, Kasangulu, Nkamba, Kwilu Ngongo, and Lukala. Soils of these 6 zones were sampled and used to make raw earth bricks. [less ▲]

Development is impossible without the realization of basic infrastructure and the construction of a quality habitat. Therefore, this project aims to contribute to the valuation of the clay resources of the Kinshasa region in order to develop the production of local, sustainable and energy efficient construction materials. The chosen region is justified by the abundance of clay raw materials and by important needs. The Kinshasa region is facing strong spatial and demographic expansion with, as consequence, the development of a suburban area in which the habitat quality is a critical problem. Since the early 1990 and the bankruptcy of the Kinshasa Brickyard, the abandonment of building in clay materials was systematic in Kinshasa. Nearly the whole population turned to a local material: the concrete brick. It is a brick made by manual or mechanical compression by mixing grinding fines of a sandstone rock (the Inkisi sandstone) locally called “dust”, alluvial sands (alluvial deposits of the Congo River or the Mbinza, Kalamu and Ndjili rivers) and cement. These concrete bricks of 10, 15 or 20 kilograms cost on average 1, 1.5 and 2 $ the brick. Despite this high cost for most households, the concrete brick architecture is almost the only present in Kinshasa. Earth bricks (even in terra-cotta) are considered poor materials and low resistance materials. People prefer big concrete bricks, which they consider to be more aesthetic and stronger. In addition, the lack of masons trained to build with other types of materials complicates the implementation of another construction method in the region. This is a challenge that seeks to overcome a brickyard which has just been created in the nearby province of the Central Congo. I have participated in providing solutions to that challenge. The brickyard tries to diversify its products by offering a compressed earth block (CEB) made on earth-sand and earth-sand-cement to suburban and disadvantaged populations. The idea is to put forward the ecological, economic and comfort benefits of earthen habitat. To achieve this, compressed earth blocks (CEB) were produced locally in Kinshasa by a manual press. The dimensions of the manufactured CEB have been adapted to be closer to those of concrete bricks. After a period of drying, the bricks were brought to a laboratory in Belgium to undergo durability tests (accelerated erosion test and accelerated aging test) and uniaxial compression test on CEB submitted to different rates of relative humidity. This work will show how we manage to generate interest among the local population about the use of earth brick based on scientific researches aiming to produce a quality building material. [less ▲]

This study tests the ways of improving compressed earth bricks by the addition of sugar cane bagasse, alluvial sand and fine aggregates. The objective is to contribute to the valorization of clay resources, with the aim of developing the production of sustainable, local and energy-saving building materials, particularly in the peri-urban areas of Kinshasa in D.R.Congo. Two raw clays were characterized and then mixed with the different additives to obtain raw earth bricks. Those bricks were then submitted to flexural and compression tests to evaluate their mechanical properties. The addition of 0 to 7.5% bagasse increases the flexural strength from 0.66 to 0.99MPa and the compressive strength from 2.54 to 3.14 MPa. The addition of 0 to 50% sand increases the flexural strength from 0.56 to 0.71 MPa and the compressive strength from 2.28 to 3.09 MPa. The addition of 0 to 35% of fine aggregate does not affect the flexural strength, but increases the compressive strength from 2.28 to 3,10MPa. Stabilization with sugarcane bagasse, sand or aggregates is an interesting prospect to improve by a factor of the order of 1/3 the mechanical properties of raw earth bricks. In addition the mechanical properties are also affected by environmental variation in humidity. The durability of the bricks (i.e., its resistance to water) was therefore evaluated by “the wetting drying test” after an addition of cement. The compressive strength after six cycles of wetting-drying decreases by 25% for the bagasse mixture, 6% for the sand mixture and 2% for the aggregate mixture. Likely an addition of cement allows to significantly increase the durability. [less ▲]

In front of the challenges that are brought about by the ageing of our population, it is a responsibility to all stakeholders in the field of architecture to consider today our housing of tomorrow. This article, focused on the topic of ageing in place and more specifically on housing adjustments favoring this process, attempts to clarify and assemble the existing literature, considering the topic at hand from three complementary viewpoints: the functional, the affective and the temporal dimension of feeling “at home”. First, the functional dimension, which is closely linked to the architectural field, looks at different scales of housing interventions. Next, the affective dimension of the habitat is studied through the lenses of home and subjective well-being. These lenses enable us to assert the need to combine both the functional and affective dimensions of home in order to promote ageing well in place. Finally, the temporal dimension of the architectural intervention is discussed, in order to position these theoretical models while taking into account the constantly evolving context. [less ▲]
