When you think Valentine's Day your first thought isn't usually 'clay blocks,' however this Valentine's Day a huge range of construction professionals attended our 14th February Twilight Talk to learn about and debate the use of this often overlooked way of building.

Green Register members Jenny Harborne of IMAGO Architects and Dan Wakefield of Greenacre Building gave a fascinating and useful insight into their experience of using clay block, sharing case studies with examples of both benefits and challenges of using fired clay blocks.
