Bricks

Dimensions variable

Projecting bricks form a subtle image of ripples undulating along the walls of a new community centre. My design for the brickwork is drawn from the landscape that surrounds this prizewinning building, a place where cloud shadows slide across windswept grasslands and bird-thronged wetlands.

For the inaugural community open day I ran a paper-folding workshop in which visitors created a flotilla of paper boats to sail the ripples on the walls.
