is the mission of The Nubian Vault Association

Earth roof in Sahel

A Roof + A Skill + A Market

In architecture, a Nubian vault is a type of curved surface forming a vaulted structure. The mudbrick structure was revived by the Egyptians. The technology is advocated by environmentalists as environmentally friendly and sustainable since it makes use of pure earth without the need of timber. Built essentially from widely available earth bricks and mortar, this Vault provides a solution for affordable and well-adapted buildings suitable in both rural and urban environment

A Nubian Vault is durable, comfortable, environment sustainable and affordable.
