Description
The focus of the BrickStainable Competition is to encourage people to think beyond all boundaries and “re-think” brick in the context of its material qualities and current construction technologies. We hope you find the award winning designs from BrickStainable 2009 inspiring and thought-provoking.
It is the goal of this Competition not only to stimulate ideas about this material, but also to document and share the best of those ideas with the design community and other influential associations through publications and distribution via the internet.
The Second Annual BrickStainable International Design Competition offers 2 separate entry categories for maximum flexibility.
1. Integrated Building Design
Design a building, based on the proposed program, focusing on architectural innovations to preserve tomorrow’s resources incorporating an integrative design.
2. Technical Design
Design a single element of a building that provides a sustainable solution to real-world environmental challenges.
