Trying to reward creativity and innovation in the development of new projects, and ensuring the visibility and recognition to new and future professionals in architecture and design, PORCELANOSA Grupo announces the ninth edition of its Porcelanosa Architecture and Interior Design Awards.
So, PORCELANOSA Grupo opens its doors to receive the most innovative and cutting-edge ideas and projects until next April 4, 2016, the period after which the jury will select the best projects presented in two categories: Forward-Looking Projects and Completed Projects. The premise under which participants must have worked is the use of materials from the PORCELANOSA Grupo companies.
For the Forward-Looking Projects category, the best project of "Concept Store" that combines a commercial area (fashion, bookstore, decoration, accessories, etc.) with a restaurant will be awarded. The award for the best resolute project will be presented in two subcategories: professional, open to interior designers and architects; and students, aimed at students of interior design and architecture and design schools, colleges of architecture and universities. Both the project presentation as well as its concept and development will be valued.
In the Completed Projects category, all projects finished between January 2014 and February 2016 are collected regardless of their nature. Projects that have mostly been made with materials from PORCELANOSA Grupo. In this category the originality and functionality in the project design as well as the innovation using products from PORCELANOSA Grupo and the integration of the project in the surrounding atmosphere will be assessed.
