How to Annoy Bricklayers

That's the condominium building on 290 Mulberry Street in Manhattan, New York, designed by SHoP Architects. The rippled brick facade and the way light shines on it results in a different look for the building during different times of the day.

I work on Broadway at Houston St, just a couple of blocks away and saw this building go up over the last year. I can confirm that those are prefab veneer panels that were hoisted up. They were about 8 by 8 feet roughly.

Usually on high rise buildings that have a brick veneer. The brick work is done before hand. Set in panels that are later put in place. Otherwise it would be too time consuming a process to laid the idividual bricks on site and the danger of loose fallingg bricks too much of a liability.
