Graham Stokes's Album: Blacklock Update~Aerial Views&More

Blacklock consists of two demountable modules. Each module can be removed with 4 screws that will be covered with a shrub. Each module sits on a 2 by 2 ledger that will carry the bus wire inits grooves. The plywood profile boards hold the module to the wall. Beneath the foam and lightweight ply are 1 by 2 kiln dried fir triangular trusses that give the module its squareness and stiffness and structure. People are quite surprised at the stability of these modules.
