The 2015 Think Brick Awards were announced in a gala presentation at Crown Palladian on 13 August. From a record number of entries in 2015, 26 were recognized across five categories.

The winners in 2015, ranging from a university building to a children’s charity centre have imaginatively and innovatively explored one of the world’s oldest building materials and challenged preconceived ideas about brick construction, concrete masonry and roof tiles.

Each category winner received a $10,000 cash prize, making the Think Brick Awards one of the richest design prizes in Australia. The Grand Prix winner also received a trip for two to the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.

The winners are:
