Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

Reconstruction Projects in Oshika Peninsula

Shoko Fukuya, from the Tohoku Institute of Technology, discusses her long-term efforts to pool the efforts of architecture students from all over the Japanese nation to rebuild the Oshika Peninsula, Miyagi Prefecture. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from the special PechaKucha x ArchiAid fundraiser), she addresses the complications found in building in this area -- the geography isn't what anyone would call "flat". On the bright side, she also goes over the richness of this coastal region: the delicious wakame seaweed, the oysters, the deer, and of course the fishermen who live and work there.

Projects Monetization Problems

Yuriy Lozinsky, GOSPay Managing Partner, and Exigen Services Delivery Director, in the spirit of D'Artagnan with a sparkling and subtle humor talked about the problems with projects monetization on PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Start-up Vol. 9. The performance was in the spirit of European top management speaches, that are able to make reports simultaneously on a very serious topics and to discuss everyday life topical problems. And that had Yuriy Lozinsky, the word "gamification", "cases", monetization of the office, discussion about relevant advertising was perfectly combined with the Musketeers jokes à la "But, thank God, have friends, And, thank God, the friends have a sword" and "monetization of the project - it's like a corvette - taxi, pass the fare!".

Two Projects, Two Cities
