A brick arch is the traditional and one of the most aesthetically pleasing methods of masonry support over an opening in brick or stone walling. Arches come in all shapes and sizes and this section outlines the important features of each main arch style. All gauged or cut-brick arches are assembled from accurately tapered brick sections called voussoirs.
Part of the appeal of a brick arch is that you can see and understand how it works. An arch makes sense to the eye; you can see how it supports a load. When an arch is carefully built with a high degree of skill, with uniform parallel joints, and laid symmetrically about a centre line, it is a work of art in its own right.
