I forced myself to skim EVERY review and mention on the site -- in that illegible grey-on-black type [haven't web designers learned yet that you can't specify 12 pt type on a black ground?] -- and found no mention of the designer(s). Then I found that the former tenant was a seafood place called Menemsha, so I looked there. . .nada.

blocks are available. I suggest you look at the block work of A. Quincy Jones or Jones & Emmons. Particularly, his X-100 project for Eichler in San Mateo. Well published. standard 8x8 blocks

Wow -- the Pan Am flight school bldg is so yearning after Edward D Stone. Of course, Stone did without the central orb in his double-tapered gold-colored arcade. Fun to see. (Shouldn't a commercial [international] flight instruction facility evoke the modern classicism of a US embassy. . .?)

Fun stuff. SDR

OK so I have found a source for laced block.

Dolese Brothers out of Oklahoma City

they have several styles of blocks to choose from.
I have not found a website yet, but I do have a phone number.

Stone screen -- I like it.

Wright called his late semi-do-it-yourself (so-called Usonian Automatic) blocks "stones". . .

I have always called it 'breeze block'. A NY thing?. (Edward Durell Stone)

'concrete laced block' is nice...

Responding to Rockland's post, I have learned through my occasional reading of British fiction that, in the UK at least, "breeze block" seems equivalent to "cinder block."

This might expand on my information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinder_block

http://www.orco.com/pr_screen.htm

This is a company in Southern California that still produces several patterns of this type of block.
