BUILDING IN BRICK
Like a kit of parts, the building is made of a system of base modules which are then articulated into more complex forms. Bricks come together to form seating, plinths, planters, shelving and porous walls to permit light, views and foster interior-exterior interactions.

‘GROUNDSWELL’ - ARTICULATED BRICK MODULES TO FORM SEATING, PLINTHS & PLANTERS. Scalable facade becomes a veritable ‘brick sofa’ where kids can come together while maintaining a relationship with the interior through porous walls.

Using the immediate environment as the basis for a scheme for a library, the project explores ideas of re-using and re-appropriating the exisiting condition of the Preshil Senior Campus and the found object as the basis for motif, ornament and articulation in landscape.

- Horizontally and vertically stacked - Forms outdoor seating and wall reinforcement
- Horizontally and vertically stacked - Typical wall construction module - Also used in brick facade articulation
Taking cues from the Preshil philosophy and the ways in which the physical landscape of the school has incrementally developed over time, the scheme addresses the importance of proper siting, the maintenance of exisiting thoroughfares and the delicate relationship of program and volume within a multipolar environment. The proposal for a new library is a celebration of the ordinary. It recognizes the value of the haptic, the phenomenological experience and the comfort of sights, smells and attachments to meaningful ties to the past while looking toward the future. The brick is valued as an individual unit and for its compositional value, used in incremental building to articulate space in subtly different ways.
