Peanut Pavilion, For The Kulturproject that located in Berlin, Germany, was designed by Studio MK27. This process materialized through the use of stackable building elements generating, besides the very spaces, an optical effect texture. A piece that went beyond civil construction and able to constitute an object of art, both individually and within the group, was sought, transforming the pavilion in a plastic space and enriching it with movement, light and emotion.
The element that was called here the peanut is actually a prototype called cassini block developed by sheet design. The cassini blocks are made with a technique unique to ceramics: slip-casting, or the forming of thin-walled objects using liquid clay slip and a waterabsorbent plaster mold. Instead of trying to force ceramics into existing models of building materials, this approach takes the natural efficiencies of the slip-casting process and uses them as constraints for design.
