Brick-Stainable Competition Entry
I recently read through all of the entries for the 2009 Brick-Stainable competition at http://www.brick-stainable.com/. People were asked to 're-think brick' as a building material, or to design a quasi-consulate building for people to stay on a site in Maryland.
I think this wall technology by Nini Leimand shows a lot of promise, in the coming years I believe building construction will begin to favour low-tech passive solutions as an alternative to the overly complex wall construction that we see today (often with 10+ layers of plastic, insulation, etc.).
I find this project elegant in its simplicity and ripe with decorative potential.
