Working with a state-of-the-art large-volume clay extrusion 3D printer, Assistant Professor David Correa’s students set out to explore how this highly used building material can be re-envisioned for the future. This fabrication tool allows for an unprecedented level of design freedom when compared with conventional brick-making methods, while still engaging the material properties and characteristics of traditional clay. The exhibition includes 3 different project types: Student Investigation, Graduate Thesis Research, and a Research Partnership Commission.

This exhibition is made possible by Masonry Works Council of Ontario in partnership with the School of Architecture, University of Waterloo and The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery.
