UDaily published an article entitled, Masterful Masonry: University Dedicates Brick Learning Wall Showcase Near Bookstore on April 17, 2012 about a newly constructed brick learning wall that graces the west side of the Newark Opera House and showcases 35 different kinds of brick patterns. During the demolition of the adjoining bank, contractors found that the concrete wall of the bank building could not be removed without destroying the structural integrity of the Opera House wall. This created an opportunity to incorporate the physical part of architecture into a design that also invites research and learning. It can be referred to as a classic case of “making lemonade out of lemons.”
