ANOTHER YEAR ROLLS IN

www.stonepanorama.com

So, year 2014 ushers in leaving behind 2013 enfolding several land marks on its journey. I here wish my readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

STONE PANORAMA January - March 2014

18

After seeing many ups & down the stone industry of India as well as of the world showed stability in 2013 generating lot of hope for better times in 2014. With the rise in building and construction activities India seems to have a reasonably good growth in production and consumption of construction materials, including granite, marble, sandstone, slate etc.

K. Vikram Rastogi

Indian stone industry has tremendous potential oweing to its large reserves of natural stones. It is the treasure trove of the stone deposits in the world, with largest reserves of granites and other natural stones. India possesses almost 20 per cent of the total world reserves in granite, marble, sandstone, slate etc. amounting to approximately 1,690 million cubic meters. This is the beginning of 2014 and present conditions look calm and fit to move ahead, with hope in our hearts and a determination to achieve. There is no substitute to hard work. Work hard and result are bound to be in your favour. Don't let time slip. Be on your guard. May God bless you.

Indian stone industry has tremendous potential oweing to its large reserves of natural stones. It is the treasure trove of the stone deposits in the world, with largest reserves of granites and other natural stones. India possesses almost 20 per cent of the total world reserves in granite, marble, sandstone, slate etc. amounting to approximately 1,690 million cubic meters. But due to certain practical difficulties India so far could not explore and utilise fully its potential in the stone sector. Large chunks of different stones lie in forest area, and government rules to preserve forests to save environment forbids mining in the area. But still with stone friendly government policies both in production and import of stones,

specially marble, Indian stone industry can deliver better results and help in generating more revenue for the country. With both man and material India can achieve number one position in the world stone industry. In the beginning of 2014 we must look back to our achievements and failures in 2013; achievements to assess our capabilities and scope in the field while failures to take lesson to correct our strategies to do better. We must learn to use latest techniques in production and exports, while keeping our ear and eyes open to see what is happening new in the field. Here I must tell you not to hesitate in reaching to establishments like All India Granites & Stone Association (AIGSA), CAPEXIL and Stone Technology Centre which are there to help people involved in production, marketing and export of Indian stones. You may here note that AIGSA is now becoming Federation of Indian Granite and Stone Industry. This is the beginning of 2014 and present conditions look calm and fit to move ahead, with hope in our hearts and a determination to achieve. There is no substitute to hard work. Work hard and result are bound to be in your favour. Don't let time slip. Be on your guard. May God bless you. K. Vikram Rastogi

ASSISTANCE TO ONE WORK STONE INDUSTRY

Humans have been shaping stone and using it to errect buildings since around 5000 BC. The industry has come a longway since then, with the development of innovative tools and techniques.

Marmomacc 2013, The 48th edition of world's leading trade fair for marble-natural stone, design and technology, was witness to a collaboration agreement signed for training of young Palestinian architects and marble workers. This project is being promoted and financed by Unido, the UN agency dedicated to supporting small-medium companies in developing countries. Hebron Polytechnic University has already seen the installation of two workshops with machinery and technology from Italy for processing and analyzing various stone materials. The programmes of courses were defined by Italian professors together with colleagues from Hebron city, which is one of the main districts for stone quarrying and processing.

Now, a new player, Poseidon Industries is taking the US stone machinery world by storm. With over 25 years combined experience, the Poseidon team know precisely what is needed in order to make the process of cutting and shaping stone easier, faster and more cost effective. The company has expertise in CNC stone machinery, stone edge polishing machines and stone cutting bridge saws. The team is justifiably proud of the new range of equipment, which has already been wellreceived within the industry. The key products of the company include the Brilliance Slab Polisher, The Vanquish Waterjet CNC Saw and the Goliath Block Saw. All these machines are combined with innovative design features to create a new class of equipment for all those working with stone. Its new Odeon Bridge Saw, which features a touch-screen for ease of use and precision, is made in the US, but features a specialist 20 HP motor made in Italy.

The signatories of the Unido project, in addition to Veronafiere with Marmomacc, also include the Palestinian Centre for Stone and Marble and the International Marble Institute. The Unido's project is also supported by Confindustria MarmoMachine and Palestinian Stone and Marble Union. The Unido project has made it possible to create a computer system at the Hebron Marble Centre with a data base, software for management and recycling stone waste. A programme for the assessment of production costs for processed products is also being finalised by Unido.

Researchers have found large amounts of feldspar, which is a important ingredient of granite, in an ancient Martian Volcano. The Location of the feldspar also provides an explanation for how granite could have formed on Mars. While the magma slowly cools under the subsurface, low density melt separates from dense crystals in a process called fractionation. The cycle is repeated over and over for millennia until granite is formed. Granite is often found on Earth in tectonically active regions. The research team NASA concluded that prolonged magmatic activity on Mars can also produce granite on a large scale.

But Italian imports of the decorative and building stone have fallen down. In 2013 it fell to 190 million euros compared to 199 million euros in the first half of 2012 (-4.3%). Italian exports of machinery and technologies also could not show encouraging results. It remained almost stable amounting to 447 million euros against 463 million euros in 2012.

You do we good. I am happy and say this is beautiful. That is architecture.� Great architecture is both aesthetically beautiful and scientifically practical. In the 21st century, we are seeing many such wonderful constructions.

ELLORA CAVES Ellora, also called Verul or Elura, the corrupted form of the ancient name Elapura, is a world famous Indian heritage site, located 29 km North-West of the city of Aurangabad in the state of Maharashtra. Build by Rashtrakuta dynasty the site is known for its

monumental caves which represent the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture. The site is a cluster of 34 cave structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills. Buddhist, Hindu and Jain rock-cut temples and viharas and mathas were build between the 5th century and 10th century. The 12 Buddhist (1-12),

Shiva cave at Elephanta. The treatment of the pillars with their cushion capitals further suggests such a connection. The key feature in this cave is the double row of stone benches extending almost the full length of the halls, within the rectangle of pillars. Such benches are typical of the seating pattera used in ritual recitation in later Tantrism and Zen Buddhism outside of India and suggest that benches made of ephemeral materials might possibly have been used in 'Vihara' and 'Chaitya' type caves or free standing buildings for centuries, but that their memory is preserved only in the rock-cut examples at Ellora and Kanheri.

recapitulate some of the basic architectural and iconographic formats found at other sites, but others suggest innovative and advanced Buddhist thinking. Cave 5, the earliest Buddhist cave at Ellora, is a large rectangular hall, about 35 m in length, with surrounding small cells, a shrine in the centre of the rear wall, and two other shrine areas in the centres of the side walls. The expansion of the two side-shrine areas may be seen as a further development of the plan cave 6 at Ajanta although here, the main hall has become elongated. Both the rectangular, axial format and the addition of two cross-axis shrines are features that developed in Hindu monuments of the preceding century, such as the Cave 6

caves is seen in cave 12. It is a three story structure. Its plain and austere faรงade belies the richness of sculptural decoration within. Each floor of the cave is different in plan and format. The main shrine on each floor contains the now familiar set of images.

Cave 12

With cave 12 at Ellora, Buddhist artistic activity in the western Deccan came to a virtual halt. The developments over the period of about two hundred and fifty years from the Vakataka resurgence to the creation of cave 12 at Ellora were rapid and dramatic. The development in Buddhism as documented in these caves must have been extremely rich, fostered perhaps by an active lay patronage and nurtured by the suitable environment and context created in the monasteries themselves. The rock-cut tradition itself was hardly over, for some of the most impressive of all rock-cut monuments were yet to be created in the service of the Hindu religion.

INDIA'S HERITAGE SITES

AJANTA CAVES The Ajanta caves in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India are about 300 rock cut Buddhist cave monument which date from the 2nd century BC to about 650 AD. Ajanta, where more than twenty caves, many of them major achievements of architecture, sculpture, and painting in their own right, were excavated during the Vakataka period. Dramatically cut into the curved mountain wall above the Waghora River, the cave constitute virtually complete monastic entities, including living quarter, devotional areas and assembly halls. The caves provide important insight into Buddhist theory, practice and religious expression in art of the period.

Cave 19

In general, the earliest Vakataka artistic activity occurred near the centre of the site and the latest activity took place towards the two extremes. Vakataka dynasty was closely linked to kingdom of Gupta. After a long period of neglect, the Ajanta caves, by this point

Cave 26

heavily covered by dense vegetation, were rediscovered by chance in 1817 by an English soldier involved in military maneuvers. The caves architecturally structured, contain a significant complex of sculptures, statues, reliefs, and most important, an exceptional collection of fresco-type paintings. The rooms of the caves, a typical expression of the rock architecture of the Deccan, correspond to two specific traditional typologies of the sacred sites of Buddhism. The five of the caves are sanctuaries while the rest are monasteries. The temples feature an elongated rectangular plan with apses, and in the terminal niche generally feature a stupa, a reliquary in the form of a mound. Inside punctuated by decorated pillars, of the walls are covered with small sculptures rich in naturalistic motifs. The portals the sanctuaries are monumental sculptural and architectural structures, enlivened by columns and countless statues of the Buddha. Cave 19 in the complex consists of a courtyard with accompanying cells as well as the sanctuary hall itself. In

elaborate faรงade contains a single entrance into the cave, marked by a pillared portico that projects from the wall of rock. The large circular window above the portico with its rock-cut rafters reveals the heritage of early sanctuary halls that had been based on wooden prototypes. The decoration of cave 26 demonstrates the final burst of exuberance at Ajanta. An inscription identifies the donor of the cave as the Bhiksu Buddha bhadra, who dedicated it to the deceased Bhavviraga, a minister of the Asmaka feudatories of the Vakataka. Much larger and more elaborate than cave 19, cave 26 anticipates the Buddhists and Hindu monuments that were created later in Western India during the sixth century. As vital documents of Buddhist art, the Ajanta Caves can hardly be overestimated. In a short burst of incredible artistic activity the patrons, together with the sculptors, painters and iconographers, provided a concise illustration of the general tendency in Indic art towards embellishment and elaboration of the highest quality.

MIRACULOUS ENGINEERED STONE FROM JOHNSON

www.stonepanorama.com

Architects and builders have used natural stones like marble and granite for thousands of years in order to achieve a look of artistry and affluence. Marble floors have stood as a decorative touch, an opulent addition to an interior and are intrinsically valued for their regal appeal across all continents and cultures.

STONE PANORAMA January - March 2014

Virtually all natural products have flaws which can add to their charm. Though they look appealing, these flaws can also pose problems which many consumers are not aware of. Natural granite and marble have veins and seams, which can crack. Being porous, they are susceptible to staining, and must be treated with sealers on a regular basis. Besides dirt, porous surfaces can harbor bacteria, which is the last thing you would want on your kitchen or bathroom surface. Engineered stones from the stable of Johnson Marble & Quartz represent an excellent alternative for natural marble & granite. They combine the aesthetic appeal of stone with the practical advantages of modern technology. Natural crushed stone (which is a byproduct from stone quarries) is combined with color pigments and bound with polyester resin to provide a uniform, reliable, versatile surface. The resulting product retains most of the advantages of its natural counterpart along with few more like l Being a manufactured product, the technical parameters and quality remain stable l Less porous, higher stain resistance and harder compared to natural surface l It can be used in large formats with reduced thicknesses l Available on demand with homogenous colors and structure l Available in fabulous range of colors palettes l Ease of maintenance and very low cost of ownership Johnson engineered quartz is comprised of more than

90% quartz crystals which is one of the hardest minerals found in nature. These compact, hard, imperious, composite products can be supplied in the form of slabs, tiles, or special formats with a wide range of applications in private, public and industrial sectors. Application areas include flooring, wall cladding, kitchen countertops, door jambs, window sills, bathroom vanity units, tables etc. Johnson TopShield - The Healthy Countertop Johnson TopShield is the pre-fabricated quartz countertop designed keeping in mind the architects, interior designers and users who value visual appeal as much as the product performance. With special anti-microbial properties and a food-grade certification, Johnson TopShield is product developed through fusion of pure natural quartz and Johnson's technical expertise. It has all the beauty of natural stone without the maintenance associated with it. Johnson TopShield is twice as strong as granite, requires no resealing, is highly resistant to scratches & stains, and can be made available in a large variety of colors. The Green-vantage Engineered stones create something beautiful and lasting from the waste generated by natural marble quarries and other recycled contents like glass & mirrors. Chunks and pieces of stone discarded by quarries are crushed, ground and used to produce nature friendly products called engineered stone. Johnson engineered marble & quartz is available in modular sizes which minimizes wastage during usage. All wastages during calibration, trimming and polishing at the manufacturing plant are also re-cycled. Using recycled contents help conserve energy and resources by reducing mining, controlling pressure on landfill space and preserving precious natural resource."

THE GEM OF STONE INDUSTRY

ISHWINDER SINGH

His services did not go unnoticed and he was made Chairman of STONA 2012, the baby of AIGSA, the pioneer to visualise and organise STONA, a world class event in the international arena of stone fairs. He took this assignment as a challenge and privilege. This provided him a chance to work with stalwards of AIGSA namely R. Veeramani, founder president Vinay Poddar, Y.R. Shah, Munavar Basha, S. Mathurajan and J.B. Surana, presidents of AIGSA. Ishwinder Singh worked with enthusiasm and determination to succeed, which gave him recognition as a man with top-class ability to manage and perform to achieve. STONA 2012 was a great success. AIGSA, the organiser of STONA since 1987, have found the right manager person and performer in Ishwinder Singh. He has again been entrusted with the responsibility of Chairman STONA 2014. Showing least arrogance he humbly accepted the responsibility again. STONA is one of the top 5 fairs of granites, marbles and other natural stones in the world and Ishwinder Singh is all out to see that STONA 2014 set a new

milestone in the success story of STONA. When STONA was started in 1987. Indian exports of granites, marbles, and other stones were mere Rs. 50 crores, which with STONA in 2012 reached to Rs. 9,000 crores. Ishwinder Singh is confident to make it expand further bringing more glory to AIGSA and India as a whole. It has so far witnessed a growth of 20 to 22 per cent year-on-year. Participation in STONA has increased every year. Of course, it is due to sheer dint of hard work and intelligent application of strategy by AIGSA Chairman and his team of associates. Ishwinder Singh is sure to pull more than 35,000 visitors, attending the fair in 2012.

www.worldstonefairs.com

A man with imagination, guts and dedication to his work, Ishwinder Singh is a shining personality on the spectrum of Indian stone industry. His fancy and love for dimension stone is so intense that in the prime of his career he became member of All India Granites & Stone Association (AIGSA) and soon established his credentials with unflinching service to the association.

Ishwinder Singh and his associates are doing their best to bring more than 10 countries to participate in STONA 2014. Their promotional efforts have motivated Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Dubai who will be participating for the first time in STONA. More than 1,500 international delegates are also expected at the fair. As Chairman of STONA 2014 Ishwinder Singh's aim is to give 30 per cent rise in STONA'S number of exhibitors and visitors and a significant boost in business achievement. Today India has become the 7th largest exporter behind China, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Greece and Brazil. Ishwinder Singh feels that with the assistance of the government and right expasures of the treasure trove of Indian stones through STONA, India can become the top exporter of the material, both raw as well as value added items. His aim is to make STONA, one of the top 3 fairs of stone in the world.

RENOVATION IN MEDITERRANEAN ITALIAN STYLE A luxurious residence on long Island in Newyork has been given the worm, sumptuous and inviting, classical Mediterranean-Italian style by Anna Arislova the architect of great vision. The architect did the job in accordance to owners desire. The owners desired to renovate and redesign building's empty 4,000 square-feet basement keeping 1,500 square feet of space as on open-entertainment area for family and their guests. The homeowners had deemed of having the entire basement in accordance to pictures of their European travels. Anna herself had traveled to wine cellars in Napa valley for inspiration on the project. For this project Anna chose a variety of natural stone quarried in Israel and Mexico. This was so because the owners wanted all of the stones to be natural. All of the material was customised for this project and budgeted over US$ 700,000 for the iron work, wood details, lighting, decore and stone. Richness and warmth could be achieved throughout the interior with a traditional combination of travertine and solid wood. This classical project envelops visitors as they make their way down the sweeping, ornate wood-cherry staircase. The custom iron railing of the stair case, the Fine Art sconce lights and a decorative mirror introduce

the design of the entire basement. The design employs 16x24 inch Jerusalem Gold travertine floor tiles throughout the space. The floor tiles pull the large space together. Anna used the stone as she wanted beige colour of travertine to complement the solid wood. To get the right colour she looked at 10 different Jerusalem Gold travertine tile samples from different stone lots sent from Israel this material is soft to the touch. The tiles are unpolished, but they have three coats of sealer from Fila to protect their surface. The travertine's beige colouring harmonises with the


Anna did some research before making her final stone selection. She looked at about six travertine slabs to find the right tone of stone colour to synchronise with the floors, columns and wood finish. She decided on Durango travertine from Mexico but with a honed finish instead of rough like the columns and wise counter's backdrop.

customs solid-wood cherry moldings and stained-cherry bar set in the 1,500 square-feet entertainment area. The space is further tied together by stone columns, made of recycled and fabricated rough Durango travertine.

As a result of this stone choice the powder room fosters the rustic Mediterraman Italian style and flows seamlessly with the rest of the basement. Within the powder room, the basement's signature sconce light and mahogany wood paneling, as well as a striking mirror and hanging chandelier, compliment the Jerusalem Gold travertine floor and honed Durango travertine counter, evoking the dedication paid to detail in every renovated space.

Thanks to cutting-edge technologies and state-ofthe-art machinery, Salvini Marmi is now a sector leader. All processes are guaranteed with utmost efficiency and quality, targeting the "tradition meets technology'' philosophy. Salvini Marmi production has successfully crossed international borders with this mix of factors. In actual fact, the company is currently exporting worldwide, and is especially popular in the USA, Canada, South America and India.

www.worldstonefairs.com

The company was established by Ferruccio Salvini in 1975 and for about 20 years worked out of its plant in Nuvolera (BS), where it produced rough Botticino marble-chip floor tiles, 1.52cm in high, suitable for the domestic market. After the introduction of polishing and finishing facilities in 1976, the commitment of sons Lucio, Giorgio, Sergio and Giancarlo allowed the company to begin an intensive expansion and development phase, opening towards overseas markets, like the Middle East. Initial exports towards the "developing" USA area, in the early 1980s, and the consequent specialization in production of slim, 1cm-high, modular tiles, led Salvini Marmi to open the new Prevalle (BS) plant in 1989, where it is still working in an area covering about 20,000sqm.

PRESIDENT AIGSA

J.B. Surana Tells INDIA HAS THE POTENTIAL TO REACH NUMBER ONE POSITION IN EXPORTS OF NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS FROM INDIA

J.B. Surana Indian Stone Deposits India is the treasure trove of the stone deposit in the world. India, probably, has the largest reserves of granites and natural stones in the world. India accounts for 20 per cent of the total world reserves in granites, marbles, sand stone, slate and others (approximately 1,690 million cubic meters). There are over 160 shades of granite colours. Unfortunately, majority of the reserves are located in the forests and restricted hilly areas. Today, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan are the top producers of granite and marble. Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, M.P, Orissa and Gujarat are the emerging states. Because of various restrictions, such as, poor state rules and environmental concerns, we are able to exploit a dismal 3% of the existing resources.

Indian stone industry is facing lot of hurdles and bottlenecks. If the bottlenecks are removed, definitely we can achieve a higher target from the present level of Rs.9,000 crores during 2013. India has the potential to become number one exporter of the world in value added product if proper level playing field is created to compete in the international market. The Government should recognise the potential of this industry and frame the policy to fully utilise the strength of the industry.

exploration of hidden deposits which have to be utilized with the help of the Association/Federation. Processing Industry l The Indian Stone Industry has acquired the state of art of technology in processing the natural stones and is well accepted in the International market. The industry has to be provided with the level playing ground to compete in the global market. l Sufficient raw material has to made available to the industry by following liberal mining policy for issue of quarry leases. l Common policy has to framed for both granite and marble since both have the similar activity from mining to processing. l Import of granite and marble dimensional blocks has to be brought under OGL scheme to allow the industry to have sufficient raw material for value addition. l 100 % marble EOU units have to be allowed DTA sale. l Providing working loan with low interest rates to the Industry and it should be linked to the production capacity of the unit and not on collateral security. l Open up investment opportunity for FDI in stone industry by liberalization of the import policy. l Provide market development assistance (MDA) for the promotion of the natural stone Industry which has to be utilized through Associations and Federations related to Stone Industry.

Dear Friends, Mineral resources play a vital role in the economic growth of the country. When the natural resources activity was at peak level the GDP of India was at about 8.5% and with the decline of the activity of natural resources GDP has gone down to 4.5%.

Infrastructure Road/Sea/Rail has to be properly interlinked throughout the length and breadth of the country which will bring down the cost of transportation of the raw material from the quarry area to the factory and then the processed products from the factory to the port of shipments. This will bring down the cost of transportation cost as well as the time required for transportation.

Mining/Quarrying Granite Industry has to be brought under Major Mineral. should be a uniform leasing policy throughout the country. l Granite Conservation rules 1999 (GCDR-1999) should be reviewed. l Quarry leases to be given on first cum first served basis. l Quarrying activity to be given industry status. l Creation of natural development fund for l l

All India Granites and Stone Association which is becoming the Federation of Indian Granite and Stone Industry has to be taken in to confidence and involved in all policy making matters. I am hopefull that if the Government implements all our recommendations definitely our Indian exports of natural stone will reach number one position shortly. With this I wish all the members of AIGSA and exhibitors of STONA 2014 a happy new year and good business opportunity during STONA 2014. J.B .Surana President

THE CONCEPT OF BIO MIMICRY IN CONSTRUCTION SECTOR Nature's wonder are spread all around us across the globe and what ever man create is born out of it. Each and every specie on this planet is a wonder in itself. Even the act of the tiniest are some time makes our jaw drop with awe. We all learn from nature and even a creature like termite has thins to teach us. Biomimicry is not a new phenomenon. It has been existing since ages. The wright brothers took a strong cue from the bultures to build a flight. Today the use of biomimicry is gaining prominence in various spheres, particularly in architecture.

Biomimicry involves taking inspiration from natures' geniuses and than use creativity to improve efficiency and sustainability in the human world. In the Eastgate centre in Harare, Zimbabwe, Stands a complex, which can undoubtedly be called the marvel in biomimicry architecture. This building has taken its design form from nature, a termite rather, and typifies the best form of green architecture. In the classic case of the building in Harare architect Mick Pearce along with engineers looked at termite mounds to develop the building. The design mechanisms in the


The Eastgate Centre building is energy efficient and consumer only 10 per cent of the energy of a conventional building of a simar size. It has saved US $ 3.5 million, just by not investing on air conditioning system. Due to its eco efficient ways, the savings percolate to the people who have taken the building on rent.

The Eastgate Centre proves the power of imagination, Else, the thought of being inspired by termites to have a building like this would only seem like a distant dream. The architecture of the Eastgate Building is a step forward towards green building concept gaining prominence in today's architecture. The inspiration from nature and its elements like tree, plants, hills, etc. determines the course of modern architecture. Learning from nature helps in solving design related problems and brings in sustainability for constructing eco sound structures. Biomimicry is the art of innovation inspired by nature. This ensures that the buildings constructed, taking its. Cue from nature stay longer. In India the concept of Biomimicry in architecture is not yet popular and slow. Its scope is tremendous in India. Hok is planning to build on industrial city based entirely on nature's principles. Financiers from Bharat Forge, planners from Hok and a group of designers from the Biomimicry guild have formed a group that looks at biological engineering solutions. Today India is looking to go greener way in construction business. Though the projects are few the scope and potential for biomimicry architecture is immense.

building were inspired by the self-cooling termite mounds in Africa. In the building the ventilation system is inspired by termite mounds. This not only reduces energy usage in the building but reduces the cost as well. The building has no conventional air conditioning or heating but the temperature inside still remains under control. The technique adopted by architect is based on how termites build their mounds where they farm a fungus, their primary food, which requires fungus to be kept at exactly 87 degrees F. The termite achieve this remarkable feat by constantly opening and closing a series of heating and cooling vents throughout the mound. The air is sucked in at the lower part of the mound, down into enclosures with muddy walls. Then it goes up through a channel to the peak of the termite mound. Termites constantly dig new vents and plug up the old ones to keep the temperature perfect. Eastgate Centre building has a ventilation system which functions similarly. The outside air that is drawn in is either warmed or cooled by the building mass. The air is then vented into the building's floors and offices before they exit through the chimneys at the top.

INNOVATIVE IDEA

An Art Park in an Art Museum

T

he Director of Mississippi Museum of Art, Betsy Bradley and its architect Madge Bemijs envisioned a place where children could play, a place full of wind sights and sounds that would attract

families with children as well as people who would not normally visit a museum. A committee headed by Bemijs and Bradley was found

The brilliantly coloured designs include two porcelain mosaic tile splash pools with seven fountain heads each. These fountain heads spray water from the centre of each water lily. Additionally, the matching mosaic frogs are inlaid on the concrete folio surrounding the two pools. One blue mosaic frog leads to the first pool, one lies between the pools and a third mosaic frog leads from the second pool to the front steps of the museum. The unglazed ceramic mosaics were chosen from American Olean and Deltile Keystone in 36 different colours. It was the only feasible tile in that situation because no other tile would have been appropriate to

these drawings, the exact measurements were got and the mosaic for the pool floors were fabricated. It took two and a half months to fabricate all the pieces in the old school, all handiwork like a traditional mosaic. The specialist company Colorco took it upon itself to do a template for the design so that the construction team who found the comment for the splash pools would know specifically where to place each sprinkler head. The mosaic tile installation was completed by one installer and two helpers, who were contracted by colorco. They used Granirapid Powder and Granirapid Liquid by Mapei to complete the job. But the Mississippi weather posed some problems and the installation took five days which was longer than anticipated. The Mississippi Museum of Art's fountains were opened to the public on September 29, 2011. A parking lot had been turned into an art park for the museum.

the wear and tear from the little feel and weather. They are slip proof, frost proof and there are no sharp edges. The next step was to fabricate the tiles, but there was a limited choice. The main challenge was that it was a oplash pool for children with a fountain build in to each design. The artists art work and the sprinkler somehow had to line up with the flower heads. To overcome this challenge, CAD technology was used to communicate across the different disciplines. It was preferred by project architect Madge Bemijs. Using

CATCHING CONCEPT

The concept behind ceramic Art city in Liling, China can be best explained by its architects Studio Archea. The idea derived from their client's desire to build a hotel and a museum on an industrial area associated with ceramic manufacture. The importance of the ceramic industry for the county of Liling is reflected in the decision to allow typical ceramic products to dictate the forms and volumes of which the project consists. The various functions of the complex are located within circular based volumes, or modules that can be geometrically circumscribed. Either way, the number of volumes exceeds the number of functions that actually have to be fulfilled. By multiplying the number of volumes, we create a freely organised system that delineates the open space and establishes relationships of proximity which could be defined as "Intra Spaces". In the light of this principle, the form and the examples of the possible volumes are not important in themselves. What is important however, is the attention paid to the space of the "vases" whose shape gives rise to sinuous contours, which have no sharp edges, but are always concave or convex. The city of Liling in the Hunan region of south-east China, is a well known centre for the production of artistic ceramic, so each of the volumes that constitute the design of the city's Ceramic Museum embodies an elementary geometry in ceramic manufacture, spatially and plastically, deformed with the utmost simplicity, large cups with diameters of upto 40 meters and height of upto 20 meters, allocated to the work of production, are overlooked by a huge vase measuring 65 meters in height, which accommodates the hotel and is the focal point of the complex. All the buildings teatime an outer structural shell made of steel, and a lentsal nucleus of reinforced concrete designed to hold the vertical distribution and technical

systems. The supports of the outer shell were designed on diagonal mesh structures with a double bend, created by the elements that spiral round the surfaces and hold the matrix securing the support for the modular, ceramic cladding elements. At the instigation of Studio Archea, and adhering to the project philosophy, which focuses attention on the space inside and outside the vases, whose shape gives rise to sinuous contours, which have no sharp edges, but are always concave or contex. The dot to dot modules produced for the liling project and designed to envelope the vases, by generating the appearance of an embroidered pattern, were made using an innovative, high pressure porcelain tile using an innovative, high pressure, porcelain tile forming technology and stand out for their shape and 3 dimensional nature. They are neither sheets, nor flat surfaces, but fullfledged curvilinear objects designed to be used as ceramic pixels in the construction of curtain walls and architectural coverings of various kinds.
