Maybe I'm so boring that I get excited about brick walls...

but I wish my city could incorporate more masonry, brick and mortar into the buildings.
Not just for aesthetics (though it does look SUPER nice) but also for structural integrity

Not gonna lie, I'm kind of jealous of Europe and their castles.

We used to do it way more in the USA but it takes time and costs more than other prefabricated or poured concrete or cinder block so thats why that went away here.

@REMsleep yeah, I know and I can still see brick buildings in my city.

Las vegas, there's lotta money coming in.... but of course it has to go to casinos and whatnot

Seems like brick is pretty old-timey.

@caPnNathanael If you love brick work you should take it up as a skill/hobby maybe do a Youtube channel while you learn and then perhaps get some brick laying jobs too.
Everyone is turning their passion into careers now.
i agree!! these days everything looks like one monotone brick. no character, no personality no life. just sad looking.

@darkerlongings true! No creativity. Either that or you have modern glass architecture

Like glass is the way of the future, but to me it looks ugly and shatterable
Those are beautiful. When I went to school in Georgia I saw a lot of brick houses owned by relatives. And my dormitory was brick.

@bijouxbroussard they are and so is that!

Maybe it's my area but stone masonry is starting to seem like a lost art these days
