Abstract

Copyright © 2016 by Asterios Agkathidis and Rosa Urbano Gutiérrez. This paper investigates the possibilities which arise by incorporating digital tools into the design and fabrication of ceramic building components. In particular, we present how traditional ceramic crafting fabrication methods could be enriched by using parametric, performative and generative design techniques alongside digital fabrication technologies. Considering the growing importance of ceramic components in architectural construction due to their economic and environmentally friendly properties, this paper highlights the findings of design-led research explorations, demonstrating potential innovative solutions and failures arising through a digitalised 'file to factory' design approach.
