Material Syntax: 3D Printed Masonry Facade Systems

Waterloo School of Architecture student projects that test how building facades of the future can be 3D printed with clay are on display at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo from May 7th to August 7th, 2022.

Inspired by nature, ancient architectural traditions and new technology, three groups of architecture students worked with a clay extrusion 3D printer to develop new methods and processes that re-envision the clay masonry unit.

Projects include a wide range of playful wall systems, ornamental and light-modulating cladding systems, as well as rainscreen and solar-shading facades.
