Where can one purchase concrete blocks in order to build a mid century modern wall screen similar to the ones designed by Albert Frey?

Here is an example: http://www.eurekamodern.com/house_%207_%20Leitch-Antonsen.htm

Thanks!

I bought blocks with a simple + pattern (not the malteese cross pattern used for the wall designed by Frey) at Orchard Supply in Foster City. 48 ft. sq. cost about $150 if I recall correctly.

Orco still makes a few styles of screen blocks including the one you are looking for. Screen blocks are kind of a southern California look. There are lots of cool ones, although few of them are available commercially any more.
