Originally published on BostonValley.com – The third-annual Architectural Ceramic Assemblies Workshop proved to be an excellent opportunity for furthering the advancement of bioclimatic building solutions. Boston Valley Terra Cotta in partnership with the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning and the UB Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced Robotic Technologies (SMART) coordinated in bringing this event to life, once again providing participants a chance to further their understanding of architectural ceramics.
Participants come together from many different backgrounds to form Team Radical Matter. They’re here at ACAW 2018 to represent The Matter Factory, Dataclay, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, Szerelmey Ltd, Iowa State University, Alfred University, and the University of Michigan with a collective goal to push the limits of architectural terra cotta.
Originally published on BostonValley.com – Participants from team AECOM come together at the 2018 Architectural Ceramic Assemblies Workshop from engineering firm AECOM, Thomas Jefferson University, FABS LLC, and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Team AECOM returns to ACAW to continue pursuit to harness the thermal properties of terra cotta in a building skin.
Originally published on BostonValley.com – Individuals come together from the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, Glaze Artist Christine Jetten, PLP Architecture, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and Alfred University. Team UB is made up of experts in four critical areas: glazing design, architectural morphology, facade engineering, and ceramic arts. For the 2018 Architectural Ceramics Assemblies Workshop, Team University at Buffalo have been investigating the functional properties of iridescent glazes in architectural building skins.
Team Sasaki/Studio NYL is made up of a variety of individuals from Sasaki, Studio NYL, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc. and Simpson Gumpertz & Heger. For the 2018 ACAWorkshop, Team Sasaki/Studio NYL’s has been working on a prototype that is an innovative take on the terra cotta sunshade.
Originally published on BostonValley.com – Team Morphosis is comprised mainly of individuals from the notable architecture firm, Morphosis, as well as the architecture firms ARUP and Studio NYL. Team Morphosis, in collaboration with Boston Valley Terra Cotta have been investigating and developing a tiled, high-performance terra cotta rainscreen, finding ways to take advantage of the natural properties of the medium.
Architecture’s top professionals from SHoP Architects, AECOM, Morphosis, Radical Craft, The Matter Factory, Sasaki and Studio NYL will form blended teams to tackle a variety of theoretical and practical challenges designing ceramic assemblies for high-performance buildings.
