Brick-Work: Thinking and Making

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Graphic Design / Brochures & Catalogues / 2006

This is a book examining Sergison Bates architect's use of brick in their buildings which, although traditional, is an unfashionable material in contemporary architecture. The book contains three essays and eight case studies consisting of model photographs and construction drawings. The design was kept very simple and used only two colours, black and grey. A navigational device was created through the use of short pages, which divided chapters and separated the constructional drawings from the photography. The book is a hard-working document aimed at architectural students and is intended as an antidote to the 'glossy monograph'. Published by GTA, Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture, ETH Zürich.
