Italian Texture@JoeMcCallFAIA

These long, thin Corso Italian 19-3/4” x 1-1/2” bricks were selected by Joe McCall for the modern home he recently designed in Highland Park. These bricks are individually formed and fired in kilns that allow a variation and depth of color depending on the placement in the kiln. The emphasis of the horizontal length of each brick evokes the modern rectilinear aspects of this very modern home. The texture adds depth and character to a modern home with many glazed walls, windows and doors. This post is a tribute to architect @JoeMcCallFAIA and the incredible modern homes he has designed. The post is also in honor of artisan and artist, master brickmason, and architectural historian Rick Wood who always has something fascinating to say about brick and how it is applied. *Italian Texture
