contributed by HelleBeelden

The architects were asked to create a monument on a roundabout in Casalgrande, an area of Reggio Emilia known for its great tradition and technology for ceramics. This roundabout is surrounded by the beautiful landscape characteristic of that part of Italy. They took the challenge of involving the ceramic tile as an architectural element itself, avoiding its conventional use as a mere cladding. Just after developing a specific detail of how to panel and connect standard ceramic tiles, we understood the possibilities of how to assembly and organize them creating different structures.
