The overall scheme has evolved from notions of following the landscape, and intention of slenderness for the sake of showcasing the ceramic process.
The brick factory is comprised of three interlocking buildings that are variations on the same overall layout and constructive principles.
The total height difference within the length of the complex is 15 meters, this is resolved in the building by stepping 2.4 metres once within each building, as well as between each building. This results in 6 levels, each corresponding to a step in the ceramic process in the final phase.
I have chosen to acknowledge the fact that the Greenlandic skillset is mainly in carpentry and concrete work, and let these be expressed in the building’s materiality. In this way, the building connects to the existing traditions, not starting anew. As a new technology emerges, ceramic products have space to be incorporated in the buildings, but without having strict and predetermined notions of what directions the development could take.
