Starting off

The collaboration between MIT’s Masonry Group, led by John Ochsendorf, and Escobedo Construction begins with the start of Philippe Block’s internship at Escobedo. He will work together with Escobedo Construction designing and developing the unreinforced stone vaulted structure, featuring new and exciting shapes in unreinforced stone.

We set out to show the world that stone can be real sexy!
