3D printed projects exhibited at national gallery

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

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 & Glass Gallery located in downtown Waterloo.

The exhibit, entitled Material Syntax: 3D Printed Masonry Facade Systems, was coordinated by David Correa, a School of Architecture professor.

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.

A  clay extrusion 3D printer was used to create student projects on display at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery. Student clay project

A large-volume clay extrusion 3D printer was used to create student projects on display at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery. 

The exhibit's news release says the projects include "a wide range of playful wall systems, ornamental and light-modulating cladding systems, as well as rainscreen and solar-shading facades."

The Waterloo student work is on display at the gallery until August 7, 2022.
