Building Without Nails

Recommended Posts

I like it!



Invented by John Lloyd Wright in 1916, whose father, Frank, designed the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, one of the large buildings that escaped the great Tokyo earthquake. 


In way or another, everything is connected.  In the art of carpentry fewer screws and nail was always a mark of superior craftsmanship.  Intricate connective joints were always the mark of superior design. 


A nature park nearby has life size Lincoln Logs and its great to see the kids cooperate to lift and build with them.  .
