Description

This is the first and only survey of brick architecture throughout the world and throughout history. Brick is by far the commonest building material and as page after page of this volume attests, rich in glamour and imagination. This new in-depth study comprises not only the technical aspects of brick making and the various forms that bricks and brick-bonding have taken throughout history, but also the way architects have used them to create buildings universally recognised as masterpieces. The story of brick is traced from 5,000BC to its use in building today, from the vast baths and basilicas of ancient Rome, through the wonders of gothic brick in Germany, the majestic temples of Pagan and Mughal mosques in Iran, to its modern revival. Marvellously illustrated with spectacular, specially commissioned colour photographs throughout, this volume proves that brick is back - and a reappraisal of its amazing past is long overdue.
