Innovative brick design and manufacturing techniques are transforming the material’s capability to act as a beautiful, imaginative and versatile canvas for building design. Now is the time to think differently about the boundless creative possibilities the humble brick can bring to ambitious architects who wish to embrace different colours, textures and finishes in their projects.
Architects seeking to unlock this potential were able to find out more in a webinar from Vandersanden, entitled “The brick: special techniques and innovations”, which started on Wednesday 5th August and continued throughout the month.
“The brick: special techniques and innovations” webinar took a deeper look at the intricacies of brick production as well as the multitude of brick types available, including handform, water-struck, wire-cut and brick slips.

He also looked at the new manufacturing techniques unique to Vandersanden which allow architects to take a variety of exciting and innovative approaches to their designs using brick.
“Brick is a wonderful material,” comments Darren White, Sales Director at Vandersanden UK. “The innovation taking place within design and manufacturing allow architects to deliver designs that will excite their customers and create buildings that will make a statement in their environments. The webinar provided a background in how bricks are created and the multitude of options that are available.”
