‘Delving into the history, vast functionality and revived uptake of one of Australia’s most iconic building materials, Brickworks Building Products presents The Breeze Block Book. The curated coffee table tome explores the past, present and future of the Breeze Block,’ writes Yellowtrace.
‘In today’s architectural climate, concerns about the environmental impact of air-conditioning and heating systems are seeing architects turn back toward simpler design solutions in creating ‘buildings that breathe’. Aided by 21st century digital and robotic design tools, complex new iterations of breeze block both regulate temperature whilst heightening aesthetics.
“I hope as this book shows, its real value lies in its ongoing contribution to buildings, which offers a hopeful vision for architecture moving forward,” says Sam Marshall (editor).’
