Abstract

WORLD FAMOUS ARCHITECTS CHALLENGE TODAY THE EXPOSURE OF CONCRETE IN THEIR ARCHITECTURE. IT IS MY HOPE TO BE ABLE TO COMPLEMENT THESE. I TRY TO DEVELOP NEW AESTHETIC POTENTIALS FOR THE CONCRETE AND CERAMICS, IN LARGE SCALES THAT HAS NOT BEEN SEEN BEFORE IN THE CERAMIC AREA. IT IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN NEW TYPES OF LARGE SCALE AND VERY THIN, GLAZED CONCRETE FAÇADES IN BUILDING. IF SUCH ARE INTRODUCED IN AN ARCHITECTURAL CONTEXT THEY WILL HAVE A DISTINCTIVE IMPACT ON THE VISUAL EXPRESSION OF THE BUILDING. THE QUESTION IS WHAT KIND. THAT I WILL ATTEMPT TO ANSWER IN THIS ARTICLE THROUGH OBSERVATION OF SELECTED EXISTING BUILDINGS IN AND AROUND COPENHAGEN COVERED WITH MOSAIC TILES, UNGLAZED OR GLAZED CLAY TILES. ITS BUILDINGS WHICH HAVE QUALITIES THAT I WOULD LIKE APPLIED, PERHAPS TRANSFORMED OR MOST PREFERABLY, INTERPRETED ANEW, FOR THE LARGE GLAZED CONCRETE PANELS I AM DEVELOPING. KEYWORDS: COLOR, LIGHT AND TEXTURE, GLAZED AND UNGLAZED, BUILDING FACADES
