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. That’s 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.
