The annual Cevisama fair is the largest exhibition of ceramics and terracotta in the world, and this year a team of students from the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s Material Processes and Systems Group (MaP+S) are presenting what Architect’s Newspaper called “one of the most advanced and exciting projects in the entire fair.”
Harvard-based startup Getaway is tapping into the “tiny house movement,” and a Harvard Graduate School of Design pair is embracing the creative challenges of designing Getaway’s star attraction: so-called “tiny houses” available for vacation rental.
Students at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design teamed up with the Harvard Ceramics Program to design innovative techniques for ceramic materials. Led by Leire Asensio-Villoria, lecturer in architecture and landscape architecture, and DDes candidate Felix Raspall, the “Ceramic Materials Formations” exhibition at Gallery 224 in Allston showcased the students' exploration of fabrication techniques and the behavior of different ceramic materials.
Innovation fosters collaboration, and at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design important and exciting cross-university dialogues are always taking place. Leire Asensio-Villoria’s “Ceramic Materials Formations” exhibition is a case in point.
