Bricklab is an award-winning, Jeddah-based architecture studio co-founded by brothers Abdulrahman & Turki Hisham Gazzaz. Their practice probes the boundaries between art, material research, and built environments, merging technical mastery with conceptual rigor and interdisciplinary design. Inviting reflection upon dynamic elements that often go unnoticed, they explore the “gaps between graphics, product design, interiors, and architecture” through innovative investigations of site, object, and user— the component parts of our social and physical worlds. Bricklab creates architecture for cultural uses, visionary master plans, public space interventions, exhibition scenography, and artistic installations in response to the sociopolitical and economic contexts of their commissions.
Paul Bouet is an architect, historian and associate lecturer at ENSA Paris-Est. His research aims to reread the history of 20th and 21st century architecture through the prism of environmental issues. It questions the role of construction and urbanization in environmental transformations while highlighting the existence of alternatives to the trajectory taken during the industrial age.
