I thought this was an interesting picture even before knowing it was from a class in a technical school. I like the idea of a "building within a building" is architecturally fascinating.

How interesting!! Hi, Gattina! it seems you had a great workshop. I have a lot to catch up after my vacation! at least laundry is done so I have clean clothes to wear in front of my pc :)

Pamela said...

then, do they tear it down and the next group build it again??

Great shots Gattina. It may look a litle strange to see a building inside a building! Happy WW

masonry seems like a dying art form, good to see there are people still learning the trade. I like the house in a building shot, very cool! Happy WW

They learn that at summer school? Here, would be brick layers have to serve an apprenticeship for about four years or so.

Interesting. Here in Singapore, the students build their houses outside, in the field.

Hi Gattina - I was wondering why there was a building inside a building. Thank you for explaining. I'm glad to know someone still wants to learn how to do this kind of work.

As an Architect, I can tell you the art of masonry is not what it used to be. It's really neat to see the classroom side of it!

Hi Gattina!
How neat to have that in your school classrooms. My dad could lay brick around a house in just a short time...around a whole house within a week. I love to watch him cut the brick. He made it look easy.

[about the jury duty...if you don't show you're fined $1000.00. But there is ONE week prior to the jury show date -the day you're to be there, that you can go down and be excused from being a juror. Without fining. If you don't show that week before, and you're not excused by the judge, then they'll fine you for not showing.] I hope that clears it. There are legitimate reasons for not being on a jury during a trial, like illness, being a care taker of an invalid, being on vacation, your job...many reasons, but if you don't want to do this...then, that's too bad. In our country, it's a given right to serve as a peer in a jury.]

cool! Talk about practical training..

lisaschaos said...

That is pretty cool! I guess they take it apart when they're done?

DJ said...

Is that how they learn? Great photos!

Raven said...

Wow... what an interesting subject! I always assumed one learned brick laying on the job. I love your photos. I have to say that that little white kitty doesn't look wordless to me!

the teach said...

Who knew this was the way bricklayers learn... :)

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

Wow.....You know, I knew they had to learn somehow.....I suppose I just figured that it would be outside on a real house somewhere?!?!

I learned something new :)

Happy WW!

OUR school teaches them how to build a house by ... sending them out to build a house! LOL! They get first hand experience by building a Habitat For Humanity House!

The "baby girl" who spent the night was LUZ!!! The cat was just my wordless wednesday! LOL!
