Dodecahedron Sculpture

"Combined Residence" - EKWC, European Ceramic Work Centre 's-Hertogenbosch.

While studying the possibilities of 2D and 3D assembly of our designs we stumbled upon a new approach, independent from the attachment to facades. Our dream became the wish to construct a dome-shaped ornament: an ornamental ceramic constellation drawn against the sky that appears to float unsupprted.

As the architect of the team put it: "Bucky conquered".

Design process

The study has been undertaken with constructive advice from Prof. Dr. Mick Eekhout and related to the research programs at TUDelft with Prof. Dr. Patrick Teufel and his team.

This endevor is one of the steps in a larger project entailing the creation of a three dimensional ornament and the development of facade veils made from 'floating' ceramic structures.
