Building and Testing a Timbrel Vault

Simon Canz found this interesting video showing in detail the construction and testing (to failure) of a timbrel vault. Turn sound down to avoid the panpipe music!


  1. Wow! exited to watch this video, thanks for sharing this with me!@

  2. Back then everytime I see a brick wall, I always wonder how did the constructors build these things especially those that form arcs. It's quite fascinating, but sad to say it failed. Thanks for this interesting video by the way.
