MSA Center of Earth won the first prize

We are very proud to announce that MSA Center of Earth won the first prize for the proposal submitted in the Green Urbanism and Innovative Architecture track at the 4th Cairo International Exhibition of Innovation (Cairo Innovates), organized by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology on 22 and 23 November 2017 at Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Center .
MSA CoE’s booths received the attention and admiration of many visitors, especially the Deputy Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Governor of Giza, the professors and students of the Military Technical College and professors of the National Research Center because of the interactive live models constructed with interlocked compressed earth bricks and the proposed low-cost environmentally-friendly housing unit “ECOFORDABLE HOUSE”.

MSA Center of Earth participated in the exhibition at the invitation of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology as part of the World Entrepreneurship Week. The exhibition was held under the patronage of the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Minister of Industry and Trade, and was attended by many Arab, African and Asian countries.

About the Center
To promote principles of “Green Architecture”, The Faculty of Engineering at MSA University took the initiative of establishing “MSA Center of Earth”, a research, training and service center that aims to contribute to societal and environmental problems in the construction sector in general and housing in particular. As a first stage, the Center intends to build a pilot model for a low-cost environmentally-friendly unit for various community levels. The proposed structural system is characterized by its speed and reduced reliance on reinforced concrete, and eliminates many steps in the construction and finishing stages due to the use of Lego-like interlocking compressed earth bricks. In a practical step, the hydraulic press machine “Eco Brava” has been imported from Brazil and the center’s team was trained to operate it. Bricks were successfully produced using the campus’s sandy soil, available also all around Egypt.
