A collaboration with Del Harrow, ceramic artist, for EKWC in The Netherlands.

Experiment #3: Penrose ceramic screen-wall for arid climates

Inspired by the research of Peter Lu, we explored aperiodic penrose patterns to create a ceramic screen wall for hot, arid climates. Extruded clay shapes permit ventilation and light filtration, with natural air-conditioning provided by water introduced into the gaps between extrusions. Five different forms were plasma cut from digital files.
