BIA Honors the Best in Brick Design

BIA Honors the Best in Brick Design

The Brick Industry Association (BIA) has honored outstanding design incorporating genuine clay brick for both aesthetics and sustainability. Offering architects an increasingly wide palette of colors, textures and shapes for exterior and interior expression, the 2012 Brick in Architecture Award winning projects span 28 states and include commercial, educational, health care, houses of worship, municipal/government, paving and landscape architecture, multifamily and single-family residential.


In addition to competitive benefits over other exteriors, brick offers great freedom to match the architect’s imagination and desires as well as an essential element of sustainable design. The complete list of winners including the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners is available at
