The recent resurgence of interest in the breeze block seems to be more than a nostalgic yearning for modernism. Designers today are rediscovering the forgotten qualities that made it such an appealing material for mid-century architects, which also means finding new ways to enhance and exploit them. By deploying the techniques of 21st-century design, from digital tools to robotic fabrication, complex new forms and patterns are now possible. Not just visually appealing, these also temper internal and external environments in increasingly sensitive and climate-responsive ways. With editorial direction from architect Sam Marshall, the volume is both a survey and a celebration.
