- Bowral Bricks
The Gehry Collection is a range of 5 specially designed and custom-made bricks manufactured at the Bowral Bricks factory in Bowra, creating a bespoke brick range to compliment the complex textured design of UTS building’s unique facade design.
The design allowed the bricks to be used in an unconventional manner and hence produce the undulating walls of the UTS Dr Chau Chak Wing Building. To achieve the design intended by Gehry, a brick had to be produced that was able to be laid in an undulating manner without the risk of it collapsing.
The combination of the unique shape of these bricks allowed for the walls to be laid in a way never seen before up to 26 degrees projecting either in or out from the vertical.
