Bricks constitute a wall. A wall is constituted of bricks. A wall consists of bricks. Bricks comprise a wall. A wall is comprised of bricks. Also, A wall is composed of bricks. You can correctly say that bricks compose a wall, but the listener will first think of "compose" as writing music, and will get confused.
