Bonding Brick is a recurrent symposium addressing tendencies in contemporary brick architecture with contributions from highly engaged architects from research and practice.
Since the oil-crisis in the 1970s, the age-old material brick and its modes of construction has undergone a fundamental transformation. What used to be a monolithic solid wall construction has become a layered hybrid construction, where brick merely forms the visual exterior layer that eventually approximates the thickness of wallpaper.
What are the technical and aesthetic implications of this transformation? How does the (current) mode of construction influence the appearance of brick architecture and the architect’s aesthetic conceptions for it? On the other hand, how do aesthetic conceptions about brick architecture influence the way in which we conceive its construction? These tectonic considerations will be at the heart of the symposium.
