The Tectonics of Ornament

Started 2021
Ongoing project

The Tectonics of Ornament is a project in which we are exploring the architectural potential of combining 3D printed ceramic bricks with more conventional, standardized, brick based building systems such as leca blocks or traditonal clay bricks. Thus far, we have focused on implementing morphologically intricate 3D printed ceramic bricks into defined areas of a building envelope, such as a corner, or around a window or entrance, by an algorithmic technique we call ceramic weaving.
