Our Favourites: Three Perforated Brick Facades
We show you three exciting solutions in dealing with perforated masonry: a new museum building forms a contrasting ensemble with a historic monastery in Lübeck, the brick facade of a residential building in Hanoi creates exciting lighting situations inside, and a monolithic new building is added to a cinema in Cahors, France.
History and modern times come together on the grounds of the European Hanseatic Museum. Along with the architectural monument of the Lübeck Monastery, the ensemble of buildings comprises the new museum building by Andreas Heller Architects & Designers as well as publicly accessible outdoor areas.
