Zhang designed a house for a famous poet and another one nearby for his friend, creating a duet in brick construction. Inspired by the skill of local brickmakers and bricklayers, the architect used the material in a variety of ways to demonstrate its versatility. While the two houses employ traditional elements such as brick and courtyards, they manipulate them in innovative ways and bring them into the 21st century.
