Materials : Extruded clay brick

The refresher is an air cooler in the form of a large extruded clay brick used as a non-structural façade component. It works by evaporation of water: sun and wind activate its porous body, creating heat exchange between exterior and interior, enabling the living space where it is installed to be cooled by a small integrated fan that wafts cooled air. It is a low-tech alternative to mechanical aircon units that eat up energy and aggravate global warming.
