From hundreds of entrants, this year’s category winners were awarded the top honours based on the imaginative, creative and innovative ways in which they used clay brick, concrete masonry and roof tiles in built projects.

CEO of Think Brick Australia, Elizabeth McIntyre says, “With a new category this year, as well as a joint winner for the Horbury Hunt Award, we handed out $20,000 more prize money than last year to these designs that are incredible examples and initiatives of outstanding Australian design.

“The calibre at the awards last night highlights that the best designers and architects in Australia are choosing brick, concrete, and tiles in their designs to put them ahead of the curve.”
