This project explores and expands the idea of mortarless, stackable units. The design was based on a hexagonal unit with translated faces that allowed modules, with the help of gravity and compression forces, to securely interlock. After much experimentation, we settled on a partially aerated concrete in order to ensure structural stability. Numerous iterations, both with PETG molds and concrete mixtures were required to arrive at our final product
