An architectural rhapsody
Yoldia Society is an everchanging cluster of small constructions housing a community experimenting with clay constructions in temporary conditions. Besides discovering new construction methods, the context forces the community of architects and designers to reflect on the passing of time resulting in the decay and death of their creations. The size will vary from year to year depending on the erosion of the coast and activity in the society.
Throughout the history of architecture clay has been used as solid binding material. In early architecture and undeveloped countries clay can be seen in mudbricks, rammed earth or unburnt clay. In the western world it is mostly used in bricks. Yoldia clay is grey and will turn yellow upon burning (e.g. if turned into bricks). Yoldia Society will challenge the uses and transformation methods of clay to avoid a hard burning. This avoidance will secure its future flexibility and usability.
