Illuminating through Ceramics project and Exhibition: 7.2.2013 – 2.4.3013
The Illuminating through Ceramics project investigates a new concept of sustainable ceramic façade. So far, the use of ceramics in contemporary architecture offers an interesting combination of thermo-acoustical control and aesthetical properties, but there is very little explored about its potentials to include the benefits of sunlight.
By means of light-control techniques, geometrical analysis and contemporary digital design tools, students of the MArch Programme have explored ceramic systems to capture and transport or deflect daylight throughout the building skin.
The show features 13 design projects, 5 of them built at full scale. The production of the ceramic components has been developed in collaboration with ceramic artists Jenny Beavan and Wendy Lawrence.
