Ceramic Narratives

IVACE in collaboration with Rosa Urbano Gutiérrez, director of ECALAB, are pleased to present the Ceramic Narratives in Architectural Practice, Research and Education symposium, an evening event taking place at the Building Centre on Thursday 12th December 2019.
The Ceramic Narratives in Architectural Practice, Research and Education symposium is an evening event presented by ECAlab, and hosted by The Building Centre on Thursday 12 December 2019. The symposium is presented in conjunction with Hand Held to Super Scale: Building with Ceramics, a collective exhibition also taking place at the Building Centre between 20 September 2019 and 31 January 2020.

Major advances in ceramics engineering and craftsmanship have opened new routes for innovation, triggering the re-emergence of ceramics as a sensory and culturally inspiring material in architecture. This event will present innovative trends in contemporary architectural ceramics production, bringing together some of the most prominent international minds connected to ceramics design and creation/production. Through speakers’ presentations and chaired discussions, we will explore a wide range of topics relating to the role of ceramics in the production of architecture, such as:

- Innovation, sustainability and technology
- Craft techniques and experimentation
- Ceramics, ornament and art in architecture
- Ceramic futures: challenges and opportunities

This is the third in a series of symposia that aim to spark a discussion around the multiple attributes of ceramics as a versatile, phenomenological and inspiring architectural material.
