A staple of building construction for ages, the brick has gotten a sleek makeover. Architect Greg Lynn has designed an updated version made of lightweight recyclable plastic. Each tri-cornered unit can be mass produced, and is robotically-cut through a process called rotational molding. Lynn has demonstrated the versatility of these interlocking bricks with a structure called The Blobwall Pavilion, currently on display at the Sci-Arc Gallery in Los Angeles.
