Another Brick in the Wall

A workshop in the Netherlands demonstrates that there is nothing basic about this building block.

An international team of architects, artists and designers is attempting to reinvent the most basic of building materials, the lowly brick. In a project spreadheaded by the Netherlands-based European Ceramic Workcenter, 15 participants spent the past two years looking for ways to make a better - at least more appealing - building block.

The objective was to stimulate product renewal and innovation.
