About Face 09 Winner

Well done to CODA winning Think Brick’s invitation-only design competition with their solution to homelessness in Mandurah entitled “New Urban Order”.  The mixed use development includes a hostel, accommodation, commercial, open space and social areas to create a neighborhood community.

I really like the extruded patterned brick they created in collaboration with a brick manufacturer. I would love to see some of these bricks get produced commercially – such a clever idea to change something so simple that can have such a great meaningful effect.

Anyway, check out this link for a video of Emma Williamson and Kieran Wong discussing their entry.
