Registrations for the 13th Tile of Spain Awards of Architecture and Interior Design are officially open.
Registrations for the 13th Tile of Spain Awards of Architecture and Interior Design are open, and the deadline for submissions is 28 October 2014. The jury of the competition, which is held by the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association (ASCER), includes a prestigious list of architects and designers.
The jury will be chaired by famed architect Emilio Tuñón and the rest of the jury include Italian architect Cino Zucchi; the executive director of the Pritzker Awards, Martha Thorne; the Indian-born architect Anupama Kundoo; the young architect José María Sánchez, recent winner of the BSI Swiss Architectural Award, which acknowledges architects under 50 years of age whose work has contributed to improving theoretical and practical aspects of contemporary architecture; Fernando Márquez Cecilia, editor and director of El Croquis architecture journal; and the Castellón-based architect Ramón Monfort.
The total prize money is €39 000 for three categories: architecture, interior design and degree project in architecture. Projects need to use ceramic tiles made in Span in order to enter the competition. The competition has awarded a wide range of projects over the past few years, recognising the versatility of this material. Last year, prizes went to the “Remodelling Work on la Riera de la Salut” and “Casa Luz, single family home in Cilleros”.
The rules for the competition and the application form for registration can be found on the website www.tileofspainawards.com, where all the information regarding the current and previous editions is also available.
