Why Brickstack?

Brickstack Architects derives its name less from those relics of aging brick factories and more from the simple notion that bricks are common, elemental, building blocks of architecture. By itself, the brick is a simple and lifeless material. Yet with the guidance of an architect and the skilled hands of a mason, that ordinary block of clay can become something extraordinary.

We also believe that nothing elevates the human spirit like honest hard work.  The making of architecture is not a singular effort, but the embodiment of many hands, working toward a unified goal of what Vitruvius described as firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, or firmness, commodity and delight.
