Brick Replacement Service: Reseeding Bricks

Brick Replacement Service: Reseeding Bricks

Brick Replacement Service is an installation built for Dezeen space in September 2011.

It is a 1m x 1m hand powered ‘factory’ producing ‘Reseeding Bricks’; a replacement brick for encouraging plant life and growth in the city.

The bricks are made up of a compressed soil clay mix with a binder, and contain a multitude of seeds; from herbs and grasses to wild flowers and trees, packed into a cuboid the same dimensions as a London brick they can be placed in holes in walls or built into entirely new structures. Over time blooming into pocket meadows in the city.
