Almost everyone knows that brick is one of mankind’s oldest and most durable building materials. Maybe that is the reason why it is sometimes overlooked in ‘modern’ architecture, despite its countless creative design possibilities and excellent energy efficiency. And that is why Wienerberger initiated the Wienerberger Brick Award and accompanying biannual architecture book in 2004, in order to promote the aesthetic and functional assets that facing bricks, clay blocks and roof tiles have to offer for contemporary architecture.
The next Wienerberger Brick Award will be presented in 2016. The submission period for projects has started and lasts until 31st of March 2015. The established international award is organised every two years, with a changing jury of renowned architects agreeing on the winning projects in various categories.
