The method uses a 'former', an object the same size and shape as a Swift entrance.
The idea is a development of the Cambridge System, but instead of pre-casting entrance pieces, entrances are created in situ in the wall using the formers.
In this project, pieces of terracotta have been used, allowing the formers to be redeployed before the mortar has fully set.
The pictures below show the results.
