Wave Wall consists in a computational model and additive manufacturing prototype that proposes a system of ceramic components for facade cladding. Wave wall has the specificity of formally exploiting the maximum degree of vertical curvature that stoneware extrusion is able of performing without collapsing.
Design proposal for a building envelope consisting of irregular ceramic blocks produced by additive manufacture.
Generation and simulation of the extrusion path for the production of a ceramic block with irregular geometry and internal hexagonal structure that adapts to the overall geometry of the block.
