Architectural Terra Cotta Bricks
At first, humans unconsciously used prehistoric symbols that appear on walls as cave art; they later found it appropriate to incorporate elemental symbols that are commonly in 3D art disciplines. Symbols of hands, which represent sculpture, two crisp spirals, which represent jewelry, and a crisp spiral dissected by a textural spiral, which represents ceramics, are central features in this design. Salvaged rubble from the existing facility was used to retain a physical trace of the history of the site.
