This totally original architecture book―named 2004 Choice
Outstanding Academic Title―follows the story of brick from 5000 BC to
its use in building today, from the vast baths and basilicas of ancient
Rome, through the wonders of Gothic brick in Germany and the majestic
temples of Pagan, to its modern revival.
Marvelously 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 on 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, country houses,
temples, and mosques, testifying to the incredible versatility and
importance of bricks and brickwork. 600+ illustrations
