Computation and Clay: Evolving Fabrication and Performance Strategies for Ceramics in Architecture

May 13, 2015

The use of ceramic tiles in the built environment is vast, ranging from mass produced and assembled processes, to highly skilled and customized modes of craft. This paper presents a series of research projects, collectively titled Computation and Clay, that examine new possibilities for ceramics in architecture through the use of slip-casting, computation, and digital tooling, merging traditional and contemporary methods of making.
