In volatile times it is essential that we remain firmly focused on a sustainable future. Our Brick Award helps us do just that. With 789 entries from 53 countries, the tenth Brick Award once more impressively demonstrates its international relevance as an independent platform for innovative and contemporary brick architecture with a focus on resource-efficient and sustainable building.

A focus on resource-efficient and sustainable building.

In this latest special edition of architectum, we are proud to present the five winning projects and the overall winner of the competition. A high-caliber jury of international architects judged projects in the categories “Feeling at home”, “Living together”, “Working together”, “Sharing public spaces” and “Building outside the box”.
 
Besides the use of clay building materials, selection criteria included the degree of innovation, the sustainability of the construction process, architectural quality, fitness for purpose, energy efficiency, circularity and, last but not least, the feel-good factor.
 
Once again, the projects submitted this year are superb examples of remarkable, unique and innovative architecture. Thanks to the building material brick, they are also robust, energy-efficient, sustainable and resource-efficient. In a nutshell, they have all the characteristics that are so vital if we are to successfully deal with the impacts of climate change and ensure that future generations enjoy the same opportunities we have today.

„We hope that as you leaf through this magazine, the winning projects of this year’s Brick Award will be a source of inspiration to you. We have always cared about providing a platform for outstanding design and architecture concepts and ensuring they receive the appreciation and recognition they so richly deserve, and never more so than in these challenging times. ” - Heimo Scheuch, CEO Wienerberger AG
