The development of paste-based additive manufacturing processes between craft and industrial practice has meant that ceramic systems in architecture have seen great development in recent years. 3D print technology and advanced computational design spaces have allowed architects to rethink the formation of this highly plastic material free from the constraints of formwork and moulds. What has been partially lost through various digital evolutions and revolutions are some of the more traditional design principles and methods that may contribute to equally innovative ways to design using these materials and fabrication technologies. This talk presents an architectural approach to designing a 3D printed cladding system that reimagines ceramics as an ornamental and fire-resistant layer for structural steel.
