    The last cap landed flat which allowed the one behind it to lay flat, etc., etc.,etc.....

    These "mysteries" never seem to last as long on this website as on others.

    Here's a screenshot from an explainer video, at the critical moment, as the domino effect doubles back.




    And here's an explanatory diagram:

    Amazing, but I think that the real trick will be how are they going to get the mortar, under and in between, those capping bricks.

    You're not supposed to ask questions like that you are just supposed to be amassed.
    But to let you in on a little secrete before setting up the cap bricks you would have put down a thin layer of mortar which would have had an epoxy resin mix in it then stacked the bricks as in the video. domino-ed them then point trowel and cake decorator-ed any additional thin set between them tap them into final place with the but of the trowel handle gauged them with a set level
    there would be 2 extremely tricky parts to the process first every brick would have to be stood in exactly the right place easily done with a wooden gauge cut the correct length. The other would be overcoming the surface tension or the mortar on the ends of the bricks as they were knocked over, probably not too difficult as long as the resin in the mortar had not started to react.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    More nice bricklaying. And I believe these are actual bricks, laid around a central frame.

    What a nightmare that must have been for the brick layer trying to please the architect or builder
