Szerelmey were delighted to be involved in the recent event at The Building Centre, Ceramics: Turning the Architectural Vision into Reality.
Mark Walden, Head of Design spoke about the technical challenges a variety of different ceramics projects have presented, and how we overcame them. Also speaking was Alexis Harrison, Arup who gave a lively introduction to the world of ceramics, Graham Longman, Make Architects with whom we worked on Rathbone Square Passageway and Paula Gonzalez, John Robertson Architects who we delivered the award-winning Academy House for. Each of these projects and the Eric Parry building One Eagle Place, presented a different set of technical challenges, which made for an interesting evening of discussion. We had a full house, which was great, and networking and drinks afterwards. This event was one of a number being held during the course of the Hand Held to Super Scale: Building with Ceramics exhibition which The Building Centre are running until January 31st. The exhibition is well worth a visit with a number of different case studies, ceramic samples and extensive information about the material.
Although perhaps best known as a restoration and new build stone company, Szerelmey has been a champion of ceramics in architecture for many years. We have delivered a large number of buildings with ceramics externally and internally across London and the UK and have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with this material.
