Towering Jigsaw Puzzle Made of Stone

Studio Gang Architects’ Marble Curtain consists of 620 interlocking stone slabs stretching 18 feet high and weighing in at over 1,500 pounds. The stone chosen is transluscent and the pieces are only 3/8 of an inch thick, so the sculpture glows from interior lights.

Marble Curtain is on display at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Building Museum to help teach visitors about the science behind masonry. I suggest starting with the edge pieces and then working your way up.
