Brick Tower is a 29 storey residential, community facility and public open space over a train station. The scheme engages factory manufacturing techniques to produce large volumes of brick curtain walls. Initially as an ideas competition, Brick Tower explores sustainable models for future global urban development. The space over and around pre-existing rail networks is identified as space for speculation.
