BioMorph will focus on one local material - thin brick tiles as the research domain for the next two years (or 3 workshops). The Visiting school would explore the possibility of forming an alternative brick and test its performance based on its compressive strength and environmental qualities. A scaled prototype would be prepared within the premises of the school. The workshop would then offer the unique opportunity to scale the prototype using the technique developed into a 1:1 community center. The overall success of the assembly will be evaluated on its performative and structural qualities and the construction details as well as on the emergent spatial and aesthetic characteristics of its intervention.
