Since 1989, the Brick Industry Association has sponsored one of the country’s most prestigious architectural award programs—the Brick in Architecture Awards. As the only national association to represent both manufacturers and distributors, BIA is the authority in the clay brick industry. And the Brick in Architecture Awards has become the nation’s premiere architectural award featuring clay brick.
Architectural and design firms from around the country can enter their best material to be judged by a jury of their peers. Any work of architecture completed since January 1, 2014, in which new clay brick products comprise the predominant exterior building or paving material (over 50 percent), is eligible. These include face or hollow brick, building brick, thin brick, paving brick, glazed brick, structural glazed facing tile, new clay brick products in special shapes and/or a combination of any of these aforementioned units. An entrant may submit more than one project for consideration, and previously submitted projects that have not won a Best in Class, Gold, Silver or Bronze can be entered once again as long as they were completed since January 1, 2014.
