ABOUT THE THINK BRICK AWARDS

ABOUT THE THINK BRICK AWARDS


Welcome to the Think Brick Awards!

This year marks the 11th year of the Awards, which celebrate the use of clay bricks, concrete masonry and roof tiles in Australian architecture.

As Australia’s richest design awards, we're seeing an increasing number of entries each year, as more architects find inspiration in these quintessential building materials.

We believe the versatility and creativity with which clay bricks, concrete masonry and roof tiles are being used needs to be given a visible platform.  We seek to do that by championing the innovative architects who are finding exciting and sustainable ways to use these materials.

We look forward to receiving YOUR entry and showcasing your work at the annual Think Brick Awards Dinner on 10th August 2017 at Crown Palladium in Melbourne.

Keep thinking brick, block, paving and roof tiles...

In 2008, Urban Design was included the Think Brick Awards Horbury Hunt category celebrating clay brick in landscape and urban design. In 2013 this expanded to include a separate category for clay and concrete masonry in urban design, which saw an array of contemporary entries. In 2014 this award was renamed in honour of renowned landscape artist Bruce Mackenzie.

The winner of this category will receive a $10,000 cash prize.

In 2016, we received over 300 nominations across all award categories.
Every year finalists of this category continue to highlight the unlimited possibilities of the humble paver.

We look forward to seeing how your projects have transcended their paver beginnings to embody landscaping perfection.

Entries close on 28th April 2017 and the Awards Gala Dinner will be on 10th August 2016 at Crown Palladium, Melbourne.

The Think Brick Awards remain the richest design awards in Australia and have become a focal point for innovative brick design. In collaboration with the Concrete Masonry Association of Australia, the Commercial Masonry Award for built projects was introduced in 2013 to recognise concrete masonry in design.

In 2014, the inaugural Masonry Award was expanded to include residential projects. This provides a greater stage for concrete masonry to be showcased, and rewards architects who have discovered the design potential of concrete masonry in either commercial or residential built projects.

The winner of this category will receive a $10,000 cash prize. 

In 2015, this category was won by a family centre project, which took the versatility and beauty of concrete masonry to an inspiring new level and purpose.

We look forward to receiving your entries and seeing how your projects have transcended their concrete masonry beginnings.

Entries close on 5th May 2017 and the Awards Gala Dinner will be on Thu 10th August 2017 at Crown Palladium in Melbourne.
