Inspired by catalytic converters and ceramic air filters, the exploration of the purifying brick becomes a research into using ceramics to create a brick that purifies air.
Ceramic is known to be an excellent material to create filters because it grabs particles that are otherwise pollutants to our environment. Also, many bricks are made of ceramics; it is a low-cost material as well as a more sustainable one.
The exploration consists of three different brick iterations that vary in the type of filter, shape of the brick itself, material and so on. As the project evolves it has the potential of becoming an architectural feature for buildings and the way the filter would work is through placement and cross ventilation.
