From handmade brick to high-tech products, building with blocks of fired clay draws from a heritage of nine millennia and remains innovative, sustainable, and highly appreciated for its manifold applications. Since 2004, Wienerberger AG has presented the biannual International Brick Award for outstanding achievements in brick architecture. The 2020 award saw 644 submissions from fifty- five countries, which were reviewed by an international jury of experts. Brick 20 features the fifty nominees and the six winning designs, which are located in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central America. All the projects are presented with texts and richly illustrated with photographs, site and floor plans, views, elevations, and sections. Topical essays by Hubertus Adam, Anneke Bokern, Aglaée Degros, Job Floris, Jonathan Glancey, Christian Holl, Laura Iloniemi, and Jana Revedin discuss the winning buildings in a wider context, rounding out this celebration of contemporary brick architecture.

Established in 1819, Wienerberger AG is the world’s biggest manufacturer of bricks and other clay building materials.
