The Winners of the 18th Edition of the Tile of Spain Awards

Santa Creu & Sant Pau Hospital Research Centre in Barcelona by PICHarchitects 2BMFG was the winner in the architecture category
On Wednesday November 20th, the jury of the 18th edition of the Tile of Spain Awards met at ASCER’s headquarters. Jacob van Rijs (from MVRDV); Inês Lobo (from Inês Lobo Arquitectura), David Lorente (H Arquitectes), Eugeni Bach (Anna & Eugeni Bach), Héctor Ruiz Velázquez (Ruiz Velázquez Architecture & Design Team), Tomoko Sakamoto (Spread Editores), and Ramón Monfort (CTAC) decided to award the first prize in the architecture category to Santa Creu & Sant Pau Hospital Research Centre (Barcelona) by PICHarchitects Pich-Aguilera and 2BMFG Arquitectes whose permeable ceramic envelope seeks to blend in with the architecture in general. The first prize in the interior design category went to a project for the waiting areas of a bus station (Badajoz) by José María Sánchez García, where ceramic tiles alone succeed in meeting all the expected requirements of coverings used in public spaces. The jury decided to award two special mentions in both categories. 

In the final degree project category, the jury awarded a first prize and two special mentions. The first prize went to “Memento Mori. The Presence of an Absence” by Óscar Cruz García from Madrid School of Architecture.
