Scope note
Brick that is baked in the sun rather than hardened by the heat of a fire or kiln; the earliest type of brick. Sun-dried brick has the advantage of being less expensive than fired brick but is generally less durable; it is well-suited to dry climates. For sun-dried brick containing straw and other binders, use the more specific "adobe."
