As known, Egypt faces many grand challenges such as saving energy, Water and air Pollution, poverty and housing problem. In our capstone's project, we have tried to find a solution for over-population by exploiting Egypt's vast areas of deserts to build integrated houses that are refurbishing for air, eco-friendly, self-cleaning and cheap. The project's design requirements are to make the temperature suitable for residents in deserts and make the house resistant to the natural disasters. We made a prototype for our original design by using foam instead of rammed earth. We prove that the design has met our design requirements through the test plan. And the results were fantastic and unexpected. We have chosen North Plateau in The western desert to apply the Project where underground water and fertile soil found. We use wastes as a key to generate biogas and electricity. In addition, we use a hydrogen fuel cell technology as a second source. We are supposed to use rammed earth and palm fronds materials in building as they are found in that area
