A/D/O

Architecture, Design, Greenpoint

London-based collective Assemble works across art, architecture, and design “to address the typical disconnection between the public and the process by which places are made.” They’ve employed this philosophy at their first U.S. project–a temporary clay-extruding factory in the courtyard of Greenpoint’s A/D/O creative hub, known as “A Factory As It Might Be.” As Dezeen explains, the firm first built only a steel roof on top of the brick walls, but after acquiring an industrial clay extruder and electric kiln and finding that of all the vessels and homewares being created the tiles were the most successful, they decided to use the ceramic tiles to create a colorful, geometric facade.
