  • Wienerberger - Brick: the cornerstone of civilisation
    classical and the contemporary worlds creating a powerful case for architecture as the ultimate expression of civilisation Caruso St John s 21st century brick house in West London further demonstrated the versatility and design capability of bricks which shift and move with light and heat to create an almost organic and elemental space Nor he argued should brick be perceived as a purely cosmetic option rather like a tough lipstick Instead he argued that they are robust and enduring noble and powerful and still entirely understandable to the modern world Comparing their core characteristics to that of his beloved Tornado steam locomotive and cherished bulldog Pedro Jonathan talked of the material s nobility strength beauty and a kind of rough and ready Britishness In a cautionary tale he referred to the Tornado being called back into service in 2009 to rescue stranded passengers at Victoria when all the electric trains were out of commission In the same way the humble brick links our present to our past will not let us down and is comfortably familiar to us He went on to point out that Shoosmith s brick built church was only ever let down by the reinforced concrete roof over the nave which was probably due to cost cutting during the build process The only 20th century innovation employed is the only thing that nearly did for it One day someone will hopefully do what they should have done in the first place and build the brick vaults that the Church deserves And when they do that building will last and last Riba Lecture 1 Jonathan s contribution was the fifth and final in the series of lectures sponsored by Wienerberger at the RIBA in recent years Previous events have included lectures by RIBA President Angela Brady former presidents

  • Wienerberger - The “background” to our lives
    studied at a brick university lived all my life in a brick built street This is a building material that has been around for thousands of years and has remained popular because it is not only durable and beautiful but also because it can be understood on a human scale you can hold a brick in one hand and lay the mortar with the other There is a great loyalty to it among architects and clients who are very fond of a brick finish A straw poll of attendees at the lecture held at RIBA headquarters in Portland Place in London showed that more than two thirds were currently working in brick with only a handful using more modern methods such as prefabricated timber panels or hi tech stainless steel panels Angela then introduced the 80 or so invited guests to the inventive use of brick in the façade of several of the recent Wienerberger Brick Award winners and demonstrated a number of brick based Brady Mallalieu Designs including the eye catching rotunda of the St Catherine s Foyer and the splendid Highbury Crescent which used Wieneberger s distinctive Smeed Dean London stock brick Angela showed how the use of colour texture and design can bring buildings to life and argued that the use of brick was not simply the default option of the unimaginative social housing contractor but instead offers an unrivalled pallet of aesthetic options with inbuilt safety credentials Angela Brady She said Brick is an extremely adaptable material and can be used to create some exciting contemporary designs or recreate the heritage finish of an historic building It allows architects to express modern concepts while retaining a link to the historic British vernacular Its additional safety credentials as a fire retardant material with inherent strength allows architects
