A bracket is an architectural element and structural member. They can be made of wood, stone, or metal — that projects from a wall to support or carry weight.

In adjustable shelving systems, the bracket may be in two parts, with the load-bearing horizontal support fitting into a wall-mounted slotted vertical metal strip.

Brackets also are an element in the systems used to mount modern facade cladding systems onto the outside of contemporary buildings, as well as interior panels.
