Think Brick Awards (14/12/2015)

Entries for Think Brick’s 2011 Think Brick Awards are now closed. One of the richest design awards in Australia, submissions for this year have exceeded expectations, with a record number of entries received across the range of categories, which include the About Face Award, the Student About Face Award, theHorbury Hunt Award, and the new Open Face Award.

Judging of the awards by a panel of industry experts will take place in Sydney later this month. The awards presentation will take place at the Myer Mural Hall in Melbourne on Thursday 11th August at a gala event that will embody the culmination and celebration of the Think Brick Awards 2011. As the seventh Think Brick Awards, it promises to be an enchanting evening with around 400 guests involved in the brick industry from all over Australia.

This prestigious event will celebrate creativity in numerous forms including a dessert by renowned celebrity chef Tony Bilson, designed exclusively for the Think Brick Awards 2011 to embody the creativity and passion that is evident in the award entries.
The Think Brick Awards were created in 2005 when Think Brick engaged seven architects to deliver their visions of what a brick home of the future might look like. The Awards are now the centrepiece of Think Brick’s campaign to encourage Australian architects to ‘re-think brick,’ artistically, conceptually, environmentally and materially.

“We are delighted at the response to this year’s Think Brick Awards – the biggest yet,” said Elizabeth McIntyre, CEO, Think Brick Australia. “The theme for the Awards this year is the Yellow Brick Road and we encouraged architects and students to begin a journey of creativity. I am excited to see where this journey has lead the Oz architects - I am sure there will be some Wizards of brick”

The theme of this year’s event will centre around the strategic symbol of the Yellow Brick Road from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and many parallels can be drawn between the Yellow Brick Road and the Think Brick Australia Awards. The concepts of a challenging journey, the stability of brick and the prospect of untold wealth at the end of the rainbow are some, to name a few.
