About ‘Plinthos’


Clay brick has been one of the most commonly used building materials, which exists for thousands of years.
It has always been a symbol for solidity and reliability, for human scale, and in many cases it has also been admired for its sensual qualities.
With ‘plinthos’ pavilion we want to explore these same characteristics and add another quality – transparency,
something that is normally not associated with clay brick.
21816 bricks are used to build a continuous floor and walls.
Usually hidden perforated sides of the bricks are exposed thus creating permeable surface,
which allow the flow of air, light and sound.
