The international Wienerberger Brick Award 2018: fifty shortlisted and seven winning designs demonstrate the huge popularity and wide-ranging properties of brick as building material.

Bricks have been in use constantly for more than nine millennia. Today, the appreciation for their versatile application, construction qualities, and energy efficiency remains unbroken. Founded in Vienna in 1819, Wienerberger AG today is the world’s biggest manufacturer of bricks and other clay building materials.

Since 2004, Wienerberger has presented a biannual international Brick Award to recognize outstanding achievements in brick architecture. For the 2018 edition, more than six hundred realized designs from forty-four countries were submitted in the categories Feeling at Home, Living Together, Working Together, Sharing Public Spaces, and Building Outside the Box.

This German language book presents the winning and shortlisted designs through concise descriptions accompanied by atmospheric images, site and floor plans, views and elevations, and sections. Five topical essays by Sandy Attia, Patricia Barbas, Marcos Parga, Wolfgang Pauser, and Mikko Summanen round out this celebration of contemporary brick architecture.
