Exhibition ‘Brick Dresses’
19.08.2010
On Friday September 17, the exhibition ‘Brick Dresses: An Exhibition on an Exacting Material’  will open at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.

The exhibition presents seventeen contemporary brick facades exploring the intersection of material use, engineering and architectural expression. A research group of Academy students has systematically re-drawn the facades and presents them in parallel with photographs by Jeroen Musch.

Block 10 on the Westerdok Island in Amsterdam, designed by JSA, is one of the projects that will be shown. The exhibition can be visited from September 17 to October 13 in De Omloop at the Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 211-213, Amsterdam.

‘Brick Dresses’ is the opening event of the research project Tectonics in Contemporary Brick Architecture by Jan Peter Wingender, Professor of Material and Design at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture.
