His love of bricks stemmed from something Gandhi had said to him – that buildings should be made from materials sourced within a five mile radius of the site. Intrinsic to his common sense approach to construction was the choice of low cost, locally sourced materials. Enter the humble burnt brick. Laurie Baker developed a deep love of the simple country brick, an obsession he experimented with over his entire career, and one which has since earned him the title ‘Laurie Baker - Brick Genius’.
