ETICS exposed "brick" facade (020)

What is hidden behind this ceramic tiles cladding with brick shape? A thermal insulation material fixed over a real brick wall. The cladding, far from trying to cheat us, exhibits its not even self-bearing condition by resorting to a peculiar “rigging”. ETICS façade systems allow many other finishing materials besides renderings, it’s only a matter of weight, flexibility and adherence.
