Understanding the fundamental properties of masonry products is the first step in creating bold, fun, and sexy masonry joint design! However, there are numerous aspects of layout, width, spacing, and detailing that come together to ensure properly functioning movement joints in masonry. This presentation will include design guidelines, examples, and reference materials for creating joints in masonry that work the way they are intended to work. We will even address the age-old dilemma of architects demanding fewer joints marring their perfect edifice, and perhaps even present a method to eliminate movement joints altogether!?"
