Brickworks of Art

From the Great Wall of China to the The Terracotta Tones of Tuscany - here's some brickworks of art we all know.

From the Great Wall of China to the red bricks of Birmingham, brick architecture has left its mark on our world. So grab your passport, we’re going on a whirlwind tour in our article ‘A Celebration of Local Architecture: Brick Tinting Around the World’.

1. The Red Bricks of Boston

The American city of Boston is famous for its red brick buildings, from the historic Freedom Trail to the charming brownstones of Beacon Hill. But did you know many of these bricks were tinted to achieve their iconic red colour? This tinting technique has helped preserve Boston’s historic charm for generations to come.

2. The Yellow Bricks of Stockholm

Head over to Sweden’s capital, and you’ll find another example of brick tinting at its best. Many of Stockholm’s buildings are built from the city’s iconic yellow bricks. Tinting helps maintain this uniform yellow colour, providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere even in the heart of winter.

3. The Rainbow Colours of Bo-Kaap

In the Bo-Kaap district of Cape Town, South Africa, you’ll find a vibrant array of brick houses, each one tinted a different colour. From bright blues and pinks to rich yellows and greens, this area is a true celebration of colour and a testament to the versatility of brick tinting.

4. The Historic Hues of Rome

In Rome, the ancient brick buildings have stood the test of time, thanks in part to their tinted exteriors. From the red tones of the Colosseum to the faded yellows of the city’s historic houses, Rome offers a glimpse into the long history of brick tinting.

5. The Terracotta Tones of Tuscany

Tuscany’s charming villages and rolling landscapes are dotted with rustic brick buildings, their exteriors tinted to a warm terracotta. This tinting technique not only enhances the buildings’ aesthetic appeal but also helps protect them from the elements, ensuring they’ll continue to charm visitors for years to come.

In Conclusion

So there you have it, a quick trip around the world in the name of brick tinting! From the red bricks of Boston to the vibrant colours of Bo-Kaap, it’s clear that brick tinting is not just a practical choice, but an artistic one too. So next time you’re admiring a piece of brick architecture, remember, you’re not just looking at a building – you’re looking at a piece of art!
