The Think Brick Award winners were announced last night at The Crown Palladium Melbourne, showcasing unprecedented quality in innovation and creative use of clay bricks, concrete masonry and roof tiles in Australian contemporary architecture.
As Australia’s richest design awards, The Think Brick Awards handed out a record $70,000 in prize money to a collection of ‘one of a kind’ designs.
CEO of Think Brick Australia, Elizabeth McIntyre said, “With a new category this year, as well as a joint winner for the Horbury Hunt Award, we handed out $20,000 more prize money than last year to these designs that are incredible examples and initiatives of outstanding Australian design.”
“The calibre at the awards last night highlights that the best designers and architects in Australia are choosing brick, concrete, and tiles in their designs to put them ahead of the curve.”
The announcement of the new entrant category saw a 60 per cent increase in entrants this year, and the finalists and winners are some of the best designs seen by Think Brick.
“From the Think Brick Awards, it is evident that Australia leads the way in design. There are some world class winners from the awards, showing exemplary conception of design, choice in material, craftmanship, and execution,” said Mrs McIntyre.
Major trends in design and architecture were uncovered on the night.
“A major trend emerging from the winners and finalist is a move to interpret and incorporate the beautiful Australian landscape in their designs. Also, a move to create warmth in the design through use of material is also another stand out trend,” said Mrs McIntyre.
