About Brick & Stone Architecture
The combination of brick and stone in architecture gives a very pleasant contrast both in colour and texture, underlining certain architectural features in the elevation.
The rationale behind this combination, at the beginning was certainly an economic one, yet the outcome from an aesthetic point of view was a triumph of taste and refinement.
Many outstanding buildings in Europe and the New World would compete in excellence for this category.
Have you got any exceptional pictures? Do join.
HOWEVER there are a few rules:
The brick and stone contrast must be part of the same building wall elevation and not a coincidental picture of two separate walls one of brick and one of stone, or perhaps two separate buildings one of stone and one of brick contrasted in the same photo.
The prefered rule is for the two materials to be used within the same facade, meaning BOTH brick AND stone.
NO Paving or pavement in brick and stone - only buildings
The building must be the focus of the image with people kept at a distance.
Do not post multiple photos of the same building.
Please put a description and tag with date of building or period, plus the words brick and stone.
