Material Properties

High level of porosity in the central portion of the wall. Effective horizontal bonding and load distribution between the bricks. No visible intrusion of any material other than brick masonry onto the façade. The repeating pattern modules must be complete end to end over the entire width and height of the wall i.e. there should be no deviation in the pattern. Through computer modeling, the architects realized that a simple rotating module of bricks would create the kind of visual and textural complexity need to achieve the design objective of engaging the street corner
