CLAYERCLAYER AN INNOVATIVE BLEND OF WORLD HERITAGE WITH TODAY’S TECHNOLOGIES TO CRAFT ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE EARTHWARES
The idea behind this project is to design an “air filtering facade membrane” made of local clays, using clay 3D printing technology and supported by algorithmic structural design. The project will have a local approach using local materials to make an innovative product. The project will deliver innovative material narratives, engaging a local community, to seek resources in the local environment, providing enhanced indoor living conditions. Through open design guidelines (REMODEL), new design solutions will be provided that can be manufactured with clay printers.
The results will be communicated through established media partners.
