Feature pattern brickwork Under Construction

Currently Under Construction and due for completion later this year, the new Special Education Centre at Tyndale Christian School has three contrasting brickwork patterns indentifing the three main volumes of the centre.
The Junior school area (The Good Learning Centre) has large diagonal stripes with random tilt-shifts or breaks, as if the building has been shook or jilted, akin to a lighting strike.
The pattern wraps around each volume (entry under the canopy on the left).

The mid-section of the facility houses spaces for specialists in speech, physiotherapy and counselling as well as a life skills centre, and is identified by a 'space invaders' type pattern.
The brickies counted brick by brick off the elevations, matching the CAD hatching exactly.
The middle school (or The Zone) pattern is reminiscent of silted layers of earth, or perhaps a contour map.
