I have been watching a building being constructed and its very clever just like lego being put together, very modern method. However, it got me thinking about Bricks and how they do not seem to have changed over the years. It seems building methods have moved on but the humble brick has remained the same. Will the brick ever be replaced? Why has the brick stood the test of time? Surely laying bricks is so labour intensive that another solution would be the builders holy grail?
