Bricks of the Future

Brick of the Future presents the results of three ‘design through making’ studios at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Students designed and made new bricks produced with less energie or material, recycled materials and stacked or assembled the bricks innovatively. Each studio is a coöperation with a Dutch brickfactory: Den Daas in Azewijn, Zilverschoon in Randwijk and StoneCycling-St.Joris in Beesel. Brick of the future encourages the thinking and making of new sustainable building materials. Brick of the future is part of Crafting the Facade, an interdisciplinairy European Erasmus program organized by the Amsterdam Academy of Architeture, the Universiteit of Liechtenstein in Vaduz and the Mackintosh School of the Arts in Glasgow.
