S. O. S.: Teco Murals at the University of Illinois Endangered!
An investigative report by the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette revealed that the University of Illinois, across the next decade, but starting soon, is going to demolish a whole series of buildings on campus and that the first to go “on the chopping block”  ― to borrow the report’s headline ― is the Vivarium Building (1915-16) (illus. 1), which is flanked on its east and west façades at the second-story level by two magnificent, near-identical Teco murals depicting roiling carp overtopped by a rolling wave, all glazed in sumptuous ‘Teco green’. PRESERVING THESE HISTORICALLY VALUABLE CERAMIC MURALS NEEDS YOUR ASSISTANCE! Full Information provided by Dr. Richard Mohr. CLICK For the FULL STORY . You can help to preserve these murals simply by writing a two or three sentence e-letter to the Chancellor of the University:
Robert J. Jones, Chancellor Email: chancellor@illinois.edu
Here is a LINK to the letter Tile Heritage wrote to the Chancellor

Mathematicians (D. Smith, J.S. Myers, C.S. Kaplan and C. Goodman-Strauss) have finally discovered an elusive ‘einstein’ tile! A 13-sided tile called “the hat” forms a pattern that covers an infinite plane yet it cannot repeat, making it a long-sought shape known as an “einstein.” A sample of that pattern is shown here. TAP the image for more of the story by Emily Conover. (CC BY 4.0)
ApreiodicTile
Although the name “einstein” conjures up the iconic physicist, it comes from the German ein stein, meaning “one stone,” referring to the single tile. The einstein sits in a weird purgatory between order and disorder. Though the tiles fit neatly together and can cover an infinite plane, they are aperiodic, meaning they can’t form a pattern that repeats. Image courtesy : Robert Fathauer
