    Hello Everyone,

    Here is our first wall installation for the Solid States Concrete Conference. Special thanks to LaFarge and Columbia University for all of your help! To see more of our work please visit: http://amphorae.wordpress.com/


    The wall was 6' tall and 12' wide.


    Each unit is 1" thick.


    The reconfigurable bricks stack in 6 different configurations.


    Special thanks to Mark Collins for the photographs.

      I've seen this several times. All I want to do is run my hands all over it- both from afar and (even more so) up close it looks incredibly, invitingly tactile, but unfortunately, there are two "do not touch" signs prominently displayed on either end of the wall...

      greg, you can touch it, just lightly :)

      Thanks, I touched the single piece on the table. Lightly, of course!

      By "invitingly tactile," I meant both the forms and the material.
