The 2022 Architectural Ceramic Assemblies Workshop (ACAW) will take place on August 18, 2022 from 1pm-4pm (EST) followed by a keynote from Nader Tehrani of NADAAA at 5:30pm (EST). Now in its seventh year, ACAW is the paramount venue for exploring innovations in architectural terra cotta. The webinar will share the research and designs of eight architectural firms (BKSK, BNIM, FXCollaborative, NADAAA, Pelli Clarke & Partners, Steven Holl Architects, WJE, Woods Bagot) that have been developing terra cotta solutions for a variety of architectural applications. This year’s prototypes continue research into facade designs that integrate fenestration, Photovoltaic panels, shading and screening devices to develop more performative assemblies. Also, how the rainscreen system can be integrated into historic preservation projects. Finally, there are projects exploring the sculptural possibilities of the material as architectural surface, exhibition display and urban furniture.
