ASCER (the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association) invites entries for the 17th edition of the Tile of Spain Architecture, Interior Design and Final Degree Project Awards. Projects can be located anywhere in the world, but must make significant use of Spanish ceramics and must have been completed between January 2016 and October 2018.
After many years of encouraging, discovering and rewarding the creative use of Spanish tiles, the awards have built a respected reputation within the industry. The panel of judges is made up of internationally-acclaimed professionals working in the architecture and design sectors.
Established to foster and promote the appreciation of Spanish ceramic tiles in architecture and interior design (both in Spain and internationally), the Tile of Spain Awards are sponsored by Weber-Saint Gobain, the Port Authority of Valencia, Bankinter and CESCE.
Full details of the XVII Tile of Spain Awards are available at www.tileofspainawards.com A promotional video is available to view, which has been shared widely on social media.
Argentinean architect Jorge Silvetti (chairman for the 17th edition) is the founder of the prestigious Machado and Silvetti Associates studio based in Buenos Aires and Boston, and Dean of Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD) between 1995 and 2002. Worthy of mention is the fact that ASCER collaborates with the GSD through the Network of Ceramic Tile Studies Departments.
The panel of judges also includes Barcelona-based architect Jordi Garcés (Garcés-de Seta-Bonet studio); Elías Torres (José Antonio Martínez Lapeña & Elías Torres Tur Architects); Portuguese architect Ricardo Carvalho (RCJV Architects studio); and Ramón Monfort, from the Castellón College of Architects.
The Awards have a prize fund of 39,000 euros distributed among three categories. The two main categories are Architecture and Interior Design, each with a cash prize of 17,000 euros. The primary entry requirement is that each project must feature ceramic tiles manufactured in Spain. The third category is the Final Degree Project, aimed at students of architecture and offering a cash prize of 5,000 euros. The panel of judges may also award two special mentions in each category.
In last year’s awards, the prize for the architecture category went to a winery in Mont-Ras by Jorge Vidal and Víctor Rahola. First prize in the interior design category went to the project entitled ‘Three Metro Stations on Barcelona’s L9 line’ by the Garces – de Seta – Bonet studio. Images, blueprints and reports of last year’s winning projects can be dowloaded from the awards’ website.
