Our Favourites: Three Perforated Brick Facades

We show you three exciting solutions in dealing with perforated masonry: a new museum building forms a contrasting ensemble with a historic monastery in Lübeck, the brick facade of a residential building in Hanoi creates exciting lighting situations inside, and a monolithic new building is added to a cinema in Cahors, France.
