Call for Entries for the ASCER’s Tile of Spain Awards

ASCER – the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association – has announced the 17th edition of its Tile of Spain Awards of Architecture, Interior Design, and Final Degree Project. The magnificent panel of judges is made up of internationally-acclaimed professionals working in the architecture and design sectors. The Tile of Spain Awards are intended to promote the use of Spanish cer­amic tiles in architecture as well as interior design projects (both in Spain and abroad) and are sponsored by Weber-Saint Gobain, the Port Authority of Valencia, Bankinter and CESCE.

Chairing the panel is the Argentinean architect Jorge Silvetti, founder of the prestigious Machado and Silvetti Associates Studio based in Buenos Aires/AR and Boston/US, and Dean of Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD) between 1995–2002. Worthy of mention is the fact that ASCER collaborates with GSD through the Network of Ceramic Tile Studies Departments. He is joined on the panel of judges by Elías Torres; the Portuguese architect Ricardo Carvalho; Jordi Garcés, a partner at the Garcés-de Seta-Bonet Studio, and winner of the Interior Design Category at the pre­vious edition of the Tile of Spain Awards; and Ramón Monfort, from the Castellón College of Architects. The Awards have a prize fund of EUR 39 000, distributed in three cat­egories. The two main categories are Architecture and Interior Design, each with a cash prize of EUR 17 000. The panel of judges is also entitled to give special mentions in either category. The third category is the Final Degree Project, targeting students of architecture, and has a cash prize of EUR 5000. Entrants from both Spain and abroad are entitled to take part in all three categories.
