In Praise of Brick

New, 6 comments

Snarchitecture blog Edificial offers up some love for Nolita new development 211 Elizabeth Street, at which architects Roman & Williams eschewed the all-glass trend for that old standby, brick: "It's pretty old-school to have a defined layout, to make doors and entryways and architecturally direct what they’ll be used for. But it's also pretty new-school, now that the pendulum has swung around and an embrace of tactility and weight is at the cutting edge of tomorrow, the sheen of glass and spareness a languishing holdover from the day before yesterday."
