The winners of the Think Brick Awards have been announced, with 25 projects being recognized across five categories from more than 330 entries.

This year marks the tenth year of the Think Brick Awards, which celebrates excellence in the use of clay brick, concrete masonry and roof tiles by Australia’s best architects and designers.

Awards are granted across five categories: the Honbury Hunt Commercial Award, the Horbury Hunt Residential Award, the Kevin Borland Masonry Award, the Bruce Mackenzie Landscape Award, and the Robin Dods Terracotta Roof Award. 

The entries were considered by an eminent jury comprising renowned local and international architects and experts, including Guy Lake (director, Bates Smart), Clare Cousins (director, Clare Cousins Architects), Jeremy Edmiston (principal, SYSTEMarchitects), Neil Durbach (principal, Durbach Block Jaggers Architects), Cameron Bruhn (editorial director, Architecture Media) and Elizabeth McIntyre (group CEO, Concrete Masonry Association of Australia, Roofing Tile Association of Australia and Think Brick Australia).

The winner of the Robin Dods Terracotta Roof Award received a $15,000 cash prize and each of the other four award categories received a $10,000 cash prize. Each of the five award recipients also had the chance to win the Grand Prix Award – two business class tickets to the 2018 Venice Biennale.
