‘Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins’. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Currently rising inside four white tents on a hillside in mid-Wales, the finished Life House for Living Architecture will contain more than 100,000 bricks in light and dark variants, chosen to correspond with colours in the surrounding heathland — with the pale moor grass and the blackened gorse.
