Furnishing the PECTIS Namuwongo office

Today, we finally got to put the interlocking bricks to the test, do they work? Over the past weeks, students worked hand in hand with the help of the engineer and instructors to create designs that accommodated the use of interlocking brick to create furniture. Students split into groups designing either tables, shelves, a grey water treatment system or a  french drain. The task helped the students gain an understanding of dimensions of the bricks, how they interlock and ways they can be used to create stable structures. An experience that will be useful in further community design using the bricks.
