Red brick is the most common building material in Taiwan and a unique culture of red brick has formed out of extensive usage. From the Presidential Office Building in Taipei to the Hokkien style villages in Kinmen, the culture of red brick is easily seen everywhere. Even though red brick is not a native material, it has become a special part of the identity of Taiwan following widespread use.
However, the number of red brick walls has significantly declined. We hope to preserve the memory of the gradually decreasing phenomenon and make the end of red brick walls a starting point for new design. This design attempts to redefine the ordinary material. Using a stone carving technique, we cut and polish red brick walls again to present them in a distinct texture. The unique permutations and combinations of red brick walls transform into an abstract totem with a sense of modernity and fascination.
