summary This paper is the product of work generated in an undergraduate design studio, looking at masonry as a way to tackle the question of culture and the environment. Might masonry be so assembled as to address changes in human and non-human dynamics? The material has been largely used as a veneer to turn an otherwise colorless building into a spectacle of artistic and economic worth. Might we be able to change that, and see in it the capacity for adaptation, accommodating shifts in climate but also taste and seasonal function? To answer these questions, the studio relied, among other methods, on computational design, digital tools whose virtue lies precisely in their capacity to recognize and respond to change. Pedagogically, this meant a different approach to design, a nonlinear back and forth between the physical and the digital, including the use of body installation as an examination of the site.
