Colour Ceramic City

Colour Ceramic City

Building on my architectural practice, the research and design work seeks to re-invigorate empty and under-used city spaces through the medium of large scale two and three dimensional ceramic elements. Through the use of dynamic colour, texture and form the aim of the project is to influence people on a subliminal level, breaking the routine of everyday city life.

The work explores the relationship between the materiality of objects, the space within materials and possible impacts on the space surrounding objects in architectural locations.

The self-supporting sculptural ceramic surfaces and volumes, formed by extruded clay coils are created body deep, offering much as in damask fabric, an abstract plane with two valuable faces.

A scalability of production will allow the application of elements to site-specific interventions creating vibrant and enduring spaces.

The project was awarded Unilever Sustainability award and MullenLowe Nova runner-up prize for design innovation.
