RAMSA Partner Grant F. Marani hosted a lecture hosted at the Brickworks New York Design Studio, where he discussed brickwork traditions that have influenced his practice as an architect as well as two of his projects—the Immanuel Chapel at Virginia Theological Seminary and the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. By pairing a chapel evoking ecclesiastical forms with a museum featuring a modern patchwork of texture and color, Marani will posit that brick’s materiality is inherently liberating rather than limiting; brick is beyond style.
