The Wienerberger Brick Award 2018

The award is a tribute to outstanding architectural design as well as to the aesthetic and functional benefits facing bricks, clay blocks and roof tiles can provide in contemporary architecture.

International award acknowledging outstanding brick architecture

Almost everyone knows that brick is one of mankind’s oldest and most durable building materials, with countless design possibilities and excellent energy efficiency properties.
 
The competition puts this building material into the spotlight demonstrating how exciting, exceptional and modern architecture using brick can be.
 
The spectrum of applications ranges from building solutions using classic clay blocks, facing bricks and roof tiles to the creative application of clay pavers and ceramic façade panels.
 
Special attention is thereby directed at the natural integration into the surroundings, efficient use of energy, resources and space, the character as well as the quality of the building itself and its lighting conditions.
 
The Brick Award is an independent award; the use of Wienerberger products is no decisive factor for participation. The competition takes place every two years.
 
Out of all submissions worldwide, an independent panel of architecture journalists and critics narrows down the number to a total of 50 projects, which are nominated for the Wienerberger Brick Award in different categories.
 
Subsequently, an international jury of architects will select the category winners as well as one grand prize winning project.
