The "hands-on" workshop at the International Festival of Architecture Eme3 to build Brick-topia was a  wonderful experience!

The work of professional masons with high expertise in tile vaulting construction together with students, architects and many other volunteers was extremely interesting and educational.

If you would like to know more about the construction of this project, you can read our paper "Brick-.topia", the thin-tile vaulted pavilion, awarded best case study of 2014 by the Journal Case Studies of Structural Engineering.
