MAKING MASONARY

"Architecture begins when two bricks are carefully put together." - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Despite his preference for clear structures, this old master of architecture was a great admirer of the manual craft of masonry. With this, the planned freedom to create a building opens up the opportunity to apply ornamentation and texture to the exterior framework of the building. In addition to the various bonding options, many designs can be applied to a wall using crosswise layers, stretched or rolled courses. Facades with reliefs are formed when individual clinkers are left out, pushed in or pulled out from the coursing.
