It's possible, but I would not recommend it. The brick has no structural integrity for it.
Better to set 2 posts next to the structure.

Aren't pergolas supposed to be freestanding?

What are you saying? That there are no loads on them? That they have 4 posts?
Is Nathan starting to charge by the word?

I didn't quite follow that, Ron! Must be the drugs from my knee op
My pergola (btw, where is the emphasis applied on that word?) is supported by four posts with brackets at the top to support lateral movement.

Got it.
The poster wants it attached to the house, which in their case is a brick veneer. It can be attached to the structure, just not to the brick. I don't know if they're willing to open the interior wall to structure it so the load is properly supported.
Or... it could be the meds.
