Structural Clay and Issues of Univeral Access on Pathway Systems was prepared for the Faculty of Architecture, The University of British Columbia, in December, 1996.


Clay is an integral component of the earth's soil complex.  It is abundant and found universally.   The paper addresses first the properties of clay as a soil, some of its history as a structural product, a discussion on its durability when fired and what contributes to failure.  Finally, the application of clay as a paving surface relative to seamlessness, flexibility, accessibility, and maintenance is presented.
