An innovative way to cool buildings using 3D-printed ceramics has earned the architecture team from Iowa State University an award in masonry design and construction.

A team of four faculty and staff from Iowa State’s architecture department submitted a project in the inaugural Joan B. Calambokidis Innovation in Masonry Competition.

The project, “Mashrabiya 2.0” is a 3D-printed ceramic façade that can be integrated into a building’s mechanical system to control light, airflow and privacy while offering evaporative cooling. The façade comes in three modules or shapes, and the woven patterns on the screen wall create “micro-pores” that help ventilate and cool the space as air passes through.

The USD 10,000 award recognises Calambokidis, who retired last year as president of the International Masonry Institute. Renowned architects and leaders in the masonry industry served on the competition jury. Entries were submitted by architects, engineers, students, academics and firms from across the United States and Canada.

Shelby Doyle, assistant professor, and Daniel J. Huberty, Faculty Fellow in Architecture Leslie Forehand, lecturer Nicholas Senske, assistant professor and Erin Hunt, computation and construction lab associate, won in the young architects and engineers category.

"The computation and construction lab at Iowa State University connects developments in computation to the challenges of construction through teaching, research and outreach. Often our work feels very experimental, so it was amazing to be acknowledged by trade industries that understand the market and think our idea is viable," Forehand said.
