The 2014 Brick Awards displays a variety of beautiful brick building projects. Architects are aware that apart from traditional use of brickwork, the brick material gives the designer control of both innovative and disciplined detailed solutions with a durable maintenance free façade. Brick is being discovered by a new generation of architects.

Supreme Award winner

The LSE's student centre, with its high level of ambition and sophistication, was the clear Supreme winner for the judges. They were blown away by its dynamic character and the standards this building now sets for the future of brick. The architects, O’Donnell + Tuomey, have created a masterpiece of a building which creates a whole new language for brickwork which architecture has never seen before.

The building, which is located in London’s 'city of bricks', uses the complex space to its advantage by creating a light, spacious and delightful environment for the hum of student life to occur. The exterior uses a staggering 175,000 handmade bricks to create both solid and perforated areas, with the latter allowing light to both infiltrate and, at night, filtrate to create a beautiful pattern effect.

The judges would like to congratulate the entire team that worked on this building as it is a fine example of what brick can be.
