We are used to seeing red brick with the patina of age so new red brick buildings are going to look strange at first but may improve in 30 years. And yes if there is no adornment to a brick building it risks the Abbey theatre effect – the repetitive pattern of the bricks becomes the most prominent feature of the building. Depressing and oppressive.

Georgian buildings have more than their adornments to make them interesting, they have a pattern of varying floor heights to reflect the importance of the floors and an amount of variation between individual buildings in the same terrace.
