MASONRY LIVING AND ULTIMATE DEMO ZONE
EVENTS DEBUT AT MASONRY MADNESS® DAY
This year thousands of spectators were treated to two new MASONRY MADNESS events, Masonry Living—Beyond the Wall and the Ultimate Demo Zone. Masonry Living was designed to give attendees the ability to engage and interact with the masons and designers whose vision and craftsmanship took the project from concept to construction phases. People saw masonry construction in action compared to static displays, and they were able to pose questions to the masons discussing various installation techniques while the craftsmen were actually doing the work. Many aspects of the projects included very unusual applications of masonry showing its flexibility in real-life residential settings.
The design-build team from the Arizona Masonry Council, led by past AZMCA Chairman, Mike Sutter, along with architect Mike Anglin of Line and Space, LLC, the group designed and built an amazing masonry backyard tavern scene using four different sizes and shapes of CMU that totaled 650 units.
