On 24 May 2007, the exhibition Brick will open at the Groot Handelsgebouw in
Rotterdam, Netherlands during the Rotterdam 2007, City of Architecture show.
The exhibition will highlight the results of the Brick project that was carried
out over a three-year period at the European Ceramic Workcentre ('s-Hertogenbosch,
The architecture project Brick was aimed at product innovation. The .ekwc
wanted to stimulate the technical and artistic development of the manufacture
and application of brick as a construction material. Architects, designers and
artists from both the Netherlands and abroad have been working on the development
of a new type of brick since 2005. The .ekwc expects to be able to use this
to provide a new stimulus to the application of brick and subsequently the brick
appearance of the Netherlands.
The exhibition does not consist of a showroom full of products, but is a specially
designed presentation of both true works of art inspired by brick and new, commercial
designs suitable for further development by the brick industry. A rich, multidisciplinary
exhibition based on the experiments the participants entered into with ceramics
as a material.
