My second master project “Urban Acupuncture” was divided in five elements. One part of this five elements was the study and a design of a brick. We have visited a brick factory in Bemmel (Wienerberger) to experience, see and feel how bricks are made. After this experience, I started making models with SketchUp, wood and clay to design my own new brick.
After creating a wooden mold, the bricks are reproduced at the Wienerberger factory. Some of the baked bricks are in my possession, and others are currently used in drawing classes at the TU/e.
