The Ceramics and the Project ("La Ceramica e il Progetto"): the sixth edition starts

The architecture competition "The Ceramics and the Project", organized by Cersaie and Confindustria Ceramica to reward the best projects made with Italian ceramic tiles, is now in its sixth edition. The initiative, aimed at designers residing in Italy, consists of three architectural categories – institutional buildings/urban design, residential and commercial/Hospitality – in order to distinguish projects completed between January 2014 and January 2017, made in Italy or abroad.

The jury, composed by the architects Mario Cucinella, Cherubino Gambardella and Fulvio Irace, will evaluate the submitted works, which range from new buildings to renovations, using creativity, functionality and aesthetic taste criterias and considering the overall design, the use of ceramic tile, the quality of installation and the environmental enhancement.

A prize of five thousand euros will be given to the winning designers, one for each category. The award ceremony is scheduled for the end of June, in Palermo, as part of a Ceramics of Italy event, organized in cooperation with the local Association of Architects.

The selected works will be then displayed at the Architecture Gallery in a specifically created exhibition during Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramics for Architecture and Bathroom Furnishings, to be held in Bologna, September 25-29.

You have until May 10 to sign up for the competition. The announcement and the form to fill out can be downloaded on this site:
