Experimentation in Architectural Ceramics
Earn 1 AIA CEU.

The Architectural Ceramics Assemblies Workshop (ACAW), hosted by Boston Valley TerraCotta and the University at Buffalo, is an annual gathering and opportunity to part the veil behind the architectural terra-cotta manufacturing process, experiment with new concepts, and physically transform them into full-scale prototypes. This panel brings together organizers and participants of the workshop in an hour-long presentation and discussion of the multiyear program, advanced fabrication techniques, and the long-term possibilities of the industry.
