In this material study, PDS was challenged to find a simple and cost effective way to make an ordinary brick wall appear extraordinary and dynamic. In an attempt to make the massive 65,000 SF building feel light weight, we are working with a gradient of 3 brick types. Moving from darkest at the bottom and fading slightly to a light colored brick, we ended by capping the building with a Bone colored roof in a final gesture of lightness and visual balance.
