Created to encourage architects to consider the artistic, environmental and versatile features of clay brick use, the Think Brick Awards get bigger and better each year.
The About Face Award is an invitation-only design competition for innovative Australian architects to push the boundaries of traditional brick design by presenting original ways of using brick in a contemporary environment.
6 architectural practices have been invited to take part.
A brand-new award category, the Open Face Award for conceptual design, is open to anyone and calls for a sustainable suburban house that uses brick in an original way.
The Think Brick Awards also include the About Face Student conceptual design competition for Australian architecture students, and the Horbury Hunt Award, which celebrates brick craftsmanship for built projects around the country.
Think Brick is proud to represent the Australian brick industry and bring together architects, builders and bricklayers to ensure clay brick construction remains at the forefront of modern design.
