  • Generally made from kiln-fired clay, it is estimated that bricks have been used since 7000 BC, as examples were discovered in the ancient city of Jericho.
  • Since then, bricks have been omnipresent in the history of architecture, combining constructive ease, aesthetics and comfort.
  • Nowadays, with the growing concerns around the environment and the larger impact of materials used and decisions taken on a project, there are ways to modernize an ancient material such as brick through a few updates to its manufacturing process, making it even more eco-conscious.
  • Brick can already be considered a sustainable material because of its durability and recyclability, but there are ways to further improve it.
  • The new project for the headquarters of the food manufacturer Danish Crown, under construction and developed by CEBRA office, is a good example of how to apply this product in a more sustainable way.
