BE-AM Symposium 2022 with the participation of Bruno Figueiredo
16 de novembro de 2022 | Frankfurt
Bruno Figueiredo (Lab2PT and EAAD – School of Architecture, Art and Design of the University of Minho) is one of the main speakers at the BE-AM 2022 Symposium, which will take place at Formnext in Frankfurt, on November 16, 2022.
With the lecture “BioTILES: A sustainable interior wall panels” (Bruno Figueiredo, Paulo J.S. Cruz and Tatiana Campos) he proposes the use of materials of natural origin in the manufacture of additives, with a view to the production of new decorative wall tiles. The historical evolution of Casa Vimaranense tells us a narrative that is still kept intact by the preservation of its memory. It is common to see slate tiles in the city of Guimarães for gable cladding, or additions to the roofs of buildings, such as chimneys, skylights and roof lights. The “soletos”, are tiles of small dimensions and different shapes, obtained from slate rocks.
