Are 3D-printed ceramics the future of air-conditioning?
With the accessibility of digital technology, designers and artists continue to explore novel ways in which our basic materials can be transformed into sustainable and sculptural institutions. Mud, salt and—as of recent—clay are acting as central components to home design and functionality.
Cool Brick is the newest innovation from 3D-printing company Emerging Objects, who specialize in architecture and building components. Individual modular bricks can be stacked and assembled to build walls that passively cool the interior of desert homes.
