A new building designed by legendary American architect Frank Gehry for the University of Technology has brought out the best in bricklaying from Peter, Ray and Sam Favetti and their skilled tradesmen. The building in Sydney’s Chinatown is being touted at the city’s most remarkable construction since the Opera House.
Bricklayers on the project have been inspired by the challenges of the detailed requirements of the design to create a building which resembles a crumpled paper bag. Ray Favetti, a director of Favetti Bricklaying, a well-respected bricklaying contractor in Sydney has been dedicated to the project over a number of years from expressions of interest being called, constructing visual and performance mock ups of the brickwork both here and in China and assisting with the extensive research and development leading up to its current construction stage.
