16" Concrete Textile Block
Whitish-grey pre-cast concrete block formed with cruciform-imprinted molds. Wright used the block due to its modular characteristic making it cheap to make and easy to customize.
Pre-cast concrete block used for all walls. Exterior walls have patterns, and at certain locations, the pattern has been cut out to allow light and air to filter through.
