The project goal was to encourage local community revitalisation by providing a space for events, tourist information dissemination and leisure facilities for local residents.


Press Tile

Ceramic tiles are ordinarily produced using molds in order to provide the clay with a smooth uniform shape and finish. In this project, spheres and cubes shaped clusters of clay were placed in regular intervals, and then pressed under a solid surface to create flat tile forms.
