  Brickwork Aesthetics (HSW)
Brick's modular size gives it a level of design flexibility not found with many other materials. This course discusses how brick’s size, shape, texture, color, and position in a wall can be used to create walls with unique appearances. The addition of striking design elements through the use of details such as arches, recessed and projecting courses, brick sculpture, and specially shaped brick is also examined.
