Simple Block Submittal – 080826

amphorae is neither block nor cistern, instead it is a hybrid of both that is both structural and functional

The simple block is a vertical extrusion that has a uniform thickness of 1″.  The overall dimensions are 27″ x 12″ x 9″.  Since the block is a simple extrusion it can simply be cast on its’ side.

The simple block is a vertical extrusion that has a uniform thickness of 1″.  The overall dimensions are 27″ x 12″ x 9″.  This block is a slight variation of our Simple Block and is the getting closer to our original aspirations for the ampohrae wall cistern unit.

Tabletop Planter Submittal – 080826

amphorae is neither block nor cistern, instead it is a hybrid of both that is both structural and functional

With the engineer Peter Calcetas arriving in a week we have set up a series of smaller quick molds that we can use to test Ductal. This unit will be used as a tabletop planter containing one cistern and one planter. It is slightly over two feet long and 7″ wide. The thickness of the unit is approximately 3/4″ and will have three pour holes on the bottom.

Our latest version of our component separates the cistern and the planter. It is a variation of our Brise Block and exhibits both the airiness and flexibility of our original component.  Our newest design will also be easier to cast considering since it is simply a one inch sheet that has been manipulated.

This submittal sees two major changes:

The typical width of the concrete has been reduced from 1″ to appx 1/2″ while the connection detail between the cistern and the flanges has been thickened to appx 1-1/2″.
