Multifunctional concrete blocks
The 12 Blocks bring innovation to a time-tested building component—the common concrete block. Each block has a unique sculptural profile that engages light, shade and shadow and is designed to support and enhance a specific environmental condition of precipitation, sediment, growth or habitat.
Available in a range of sizes, admixtures and insulation inserts, the blocks are ideally suited for building, landscape and civil engineering construction. The 12 Blocks can be produced anywhere in the world, using primitive wet-cast forms or advanced dry-form production equipment.
