Exhibition: Material Syntax: 3D Printed Masonry Façade Systems

Wednesday, July 14, 2021 11:00 am - Wednesday, September 15, 2021 6:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Working with a state-of-the-art large-volume clay extrusion 3D printer, Assistant Professor David Correa’s students set out to explore how this highly used building material can be re-envisioned for the future. This fabrication tool allows for an unprecedented level of design freedom when compared with conventional brick-making methods, while still engaging the material properties and characteristics of traditional clay. The exhibition includes 3 different project types: Student Investigation, Graduate Thesis Research, and a Research Partnership Commission.

Participants: Ali Khaja, Carlo Rosel, Carrie Perreault, Sarah Miri, Fatima Jahanmiri, Manav Kelawala, James Clarke-Hicks, Isabel Ochoa, Ye Sul E. Cho, Ji Shi, Meghan Taylor, and David Correa

This exhibition is made possible by Masonry Works Council of Ontario in partnership with the School of Architecture, University of Waterloo and The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery.
