Dirt-as in clay gravel sand silt soil loam mud-is everywhere and it's free. The ground we walk on and grow crops in also just happens to be the most widely used building material on the planet.
Civilizations throughout time have used it to create stable warm low-impact structures. The world's first skyscrapers were built of mud brick. Paul Revere Chairman Mao and Ronald Reagan all lived in earth houses at various points in their lives and several of the buildings housing Donald Judd's priceless collection at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa Texas are made of mud brick.
