Today, I’ve decided to reach back into the chronicles and grab something from Barry‘s Big Blog of Building, the inspiration for this photo series.
AKA: Structural Brickwork in a Flemish Bond Pattern or . . . The Metaphor of Allusion
Location: Lewes, Delaware
In This Photo:
Originally published to the Big Blog of Building on October 1, 2009, Barry illustrates a Flemish Bond.
There are a few traditional patterns, or bonds, in which brick can be laid. Here, interlocking headers and stretchers run both in each course make an un-common pattern.
With brickwork on my mind, a brick project underway, this seemed like a logical choice. It appears in Barry‘s first week of postings to the BBOB.
From September of 2009 to April of 2010, Barry posted a single original photograph per day. For anyone interested in things building, I would recommend spending a hour or so working your way through this archive. It is quite fascinating.
