Two dwellings in Oropesa by Paredes Pedrosa, ASCER Tile of Spain Award

 
In the context of the Cevisama fair held in Valencia from 20 to 24 February, the winners of the 15th ASCER (Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association) awards were handed their prizes. The jury, presided by Gonçalo Byrne and including Iñaqui Carnicero and Elisa Valero, has bestowed first prize in the Architecture section – coming with 17,000 euros – to the Two dwellings in Oropesa (Toledo) by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos, noting its use of ceramic not only as cladding or finish, but as a material with the power to provide a project with an envelope and a unique appearance. First prize for Interiors, endowed with the same money amount, went to ‘TABA espazioa’ by Ibon Salaberria, which juxtaposes a café, a pizzería, and a wine bar on the premises of the Tabakalera International Center for Contemporary Culture in San Sebastián. First prize in the Final-Year School Project category, with its 5,000 euros, was given to ‘In-Situ: Tools and Technology in Traditional Architecture’ by M Wesam Al Asali of Cambridge University.
