Since 2005, the Think Brick Awards have encouraged architects to push boundaries in projects by reimagining the application of brick, block, paver and roof tile in contemporary design. Now in its 14th year, we invite architects, builders, manufacturers and bricklayers to join us in a celebration of the innovative architecture which continue to make our built environment more vibrant in its evolution. Featuring five categories with a total cash prize pool of $60,000, the 2020 Think Brick Awards seeks to recognise creative expression which flaunt the complexity of bricks, blocks, pavers and roof tiles while exploiting the design opportunities these materials represent
The Horbury Hunt Commercial Award celebrates innovation and craftsmanship in commercial brickwork – the prestigious category is the pinnacle of showcasing brick design for the industry. The Horbury Hunt Residential Award recognises outstanding use of brick in the design of residential projects and celebrates the unlimited possibilities for contemporary design presented by the humble material.
In association with the Concrete Masonry Association of Australia (CMAA), the Kevin Borland Masonry Award recognises commercial and residential built projects that highlight the design potential of concrete masonry. Also in association with the CMAA, the Bruce Mackenzie Landscape Award recognises outstanding built projects that use clay brick and concrete masonry in landscape and urban design.
In association with the Australian Roofing Tile Association (ARTA), the Robin Dods Roof Tile Excellence Award invites you to push the envelope in innovative roof design using terracotta and concrete roof tiles.
Entries are open from Monday 18th November 2019 until Thursday 9th April 2020, and the gala awards dinner will be held on Thursday the 13th of August 2020 at Melbourne’s Crown Palladium.
We look forward to receiving your imaginative designs composed with bricks, blocks, pavers and roof tiles, and we wish you all the best in your entries.
