Moulding, Assembling, Designing: Ceramics in Architecture
Armelle Tardiveau, Vicente Sarrablo, Javier Soriano Muņoz
Ascer, 2006 - Architecture - 149 pages
This publication aims to demonstrate the great diversity and versatility of the familiar material of ceramic. In a selection of works by architects such as Eduardo Souto de Moura, Caruso St. John, Lacaton Vassal, FOA and EMBT. Whether mass-produced or made-to-measure, contemporary architecture puts ceramics to use in unexpected and innovative ways, as a traditional cladding, as a ventilated faade, as a skin or as building material.
