The bricks used in the project is no longer bricks burnt of soil due to the lack of agricultural land in China and other pollution problems. Instead we used a kind of brick that was burnt of shale which was much more environmental-friendly. While the spatial composition of the new architecture has a reference to the brick kiln existed before, the new building promotes the notion of sustainability.
