This book features the winning designs of the 2022 international Brick Award, chosen by a top-class international jury of architects.
From handmade brick to high-tech product: building with blocks of fired clay today draws from a heritage of nine millennia and remains innovative, sustainable, and highly appreciated for its manifold applications. Since 2004, Wienerberger AG, the world’s largest manufacturer of bricks and other clay building materials, has biannually presented the international Brick Award in recognition of outstanding achievements in brick architecture. The tenth edition of this masterclass in 2022 saw 789 submissions from fifty-three countries, which were reviewed by an international jury of experts. This book features the shortlist of fifty nominees and the winning designs in five categories. All of them are presented through concise texts, atmospheric images, as well as site and floorplans, views, elevations, and sections. Topical essays by architect Matevz Celik, architecture historian Anna Cymer, publicist Wojciech Czaja, professor of architecture Isabella Leber, and architect Henrietta Palmer round out this survey of contemporary brick architecture.
