BRICK MAGAZINE NEWSLETTER
Celebrating the History of Brickmaking
The articles to be published will look at brick in Irish buildings of all types, described from an architect’s perspective. Brick has been a primary building material here since its introduction in the late sixteenth century, growing in popularity through the intervening centuries and now enjoying new popularity in some of our finest contemporary buildings.
