'Between Bricks' by Baukje Trenning, photo by Ruud Peijnenburg
In the Brick project architects, designers and visual artists from The Netherlands and abroad have been asked to develop a new type of brick or come up with a new use for existing bricks. The results are as diverse as the participants themselves. They testify to intensive form research, the search for new functionality of the brick as well as an artistic approach to the material.

The project ‘Combined residencies’ focuses on a change in mentality: to demonstrate that cooperation between architects, visual artists and designers at as early a stage as possible, benefits the interactive, creative process. The results are innovative and surprising. Wienerberger, .ekwc’s partner in developing the project, has researched and manufactured some of the results of Brick and Combined Residencies.
