In an effort to help build knowledge across Albuquerque's professional groups, McClain+Yu supports and are excited to take students and others on visit of our construction sites. Smith Plaza on the campus of the UNM is taking shape and the brick paver work is beautiful. In the works of Louis Kahn, "You say to a brick, 'What do you want, brick?' And brick says to you, 'I like an arch.' And you say to brick, 'Look, I want one, too, but arches are expensive and I can use a concrete lintel.' And then you say: 'What do you think of that, brick?' Brick says: 'I like an arch.'"
Even the humble brick expresses an ability to be extraordinary. The brick paver work in Smith Plaza is an occasion to celebrate the BRICK!
