Description

In a famous quote, the architect Louis Khan rhetorically posed the question to a brick "what it wanted to be?" - and let the brick answer "I like an Arch". However, I believe that one of the reasons brick is such an ingenious and enduring concept is that it doesn't insist on wanting to be just one thing. Brick is a patient, unobtrusive and sometimes even quiet material, which lends itself to a variety of uses and tends to outlast the various periodic styles that it becomes incorporated in. It has a basic dignity, which is no surprise since it has existed for several millennia, which can only be said for a few of the thousands of materials that form part of any stand construction today.
