Completion of our first tile vault

The team had a very productive day today. Kelly practiced building formwork-free arches with plaster and I completed the second layer of tile with cement mortar on the groin vault. With the school coming to a close at PennDesign, we will soon be moving toward working on this project full time. Stay tuned for more frequent updates in the weeks to come!
