Brick is back – and a reappraisal of its amazing past is long overdue.
This totally original architecture book – the first ever comprehensive study of brick
– follows the story of brick from 5,000 BC to its use in building today, via the vast
baths and basilicas of ancient Rome, through the wonders of Gothic brick in Germany,
the majestic temples of Pagan and Mughal mosques in Iran, to its modern revival.
Marvellously illustrated with spectacular, specially-taken photographs, Brick is at once
an historical account of how bricks have been employed by architects of every period,
a technical survey of brickmaking and bricklaying, and an essay in architectural
and cultural history.
The authors have applied their expert visual and technical knowledge to more than
one hundred themes, from bricks in ancient Egypt to their distinctive use by such
modern masters as Louis Kahn, Alvar Aalto and Renzo Piano. Great works of engineering
– viaducts, tunnels and bridges – are given prominence alongside great cathedrals and
country houses, temples and mosques, testifying to the incredible versatility and importance
of bricks and brickwork.
An illustrated glossary details all the relevant technical terms and construction and bonding methods.
