Cerámica - RIBA North


On Saturday 28 October RIBA North opens its latest exhibition, Cerámica in partnership with ECAlab. In this exhibition, we explore how ceramics are being positioned to provide a low impact solution to global sustainability in the built environment. This synergy between traditional ceramic techniques, digital design and engineering processes can be used to produce more meaningful and sustainable architectural elements.

The full-scale ceramic prototypes on display offer a viable alternative to global manufacturing and distribution. The combination of the material sustainability of ceramics, digitally optimized design of components, and the appropriation of vernacular language and embodied cultural identity, transforms the preliminary engineered product into a more socially, ethically and environmentally sustainable building component. Alongside the exhibition there will be a series of events for everyone to get involved with from curator’s tours, artist’s talks and Clay Play, an opportunity for families to come and experiment with clay, create unique decorative tiles and get hands-on.

ECAlab investigates the possibilities of ceramics for sustainable technologies, while examining the role of emerging digital technologies alongside traditional ceramic craftsmanship skills.
