2017-present

Masonry has an important place in the history architecture and our cultural heritage. Even though many thousand years old the idea of stacking blocks in different configurations is still very much relevant, not only in architecture, but also in toys and games such as Lego® and Minecraft©. The intersection between historical and modern methods and theories creates interesting avenues for research and the reinvention of bricks and masonry structures in a modern context. We investigate geometrical patterns, production techniques and structural forms that can be integrated in new tools for form finding, analysis and fabrication of masonry structures.
