Community Oven | Part 1 of 3

The studio met with the staff of Casa de Esperanza to discuss their vision for a brick oven. After a one-day course in bricklaying (at the International Masonry Institute), the students poured the foundation slab.

During week three, design began on the oven base. Of all the design proposals from the students--and two full-scale mock-ups--a corbelled and post-tensioned configuration was chosen.
