The award ceremony of the 11th edition

24 may 2019, Acquario Romano 

The jury has chosen the names of the finalists of the 11th edition after evaluating over 130 applications and selecting the projects that have best expressed the theme of ceramics as the star of the architectural project from both a formal and functional point of view.

This year’s awards ceremony took place in Rome on 24 May. The ceremony was held in the Acquario Romano, designed by Ettore Bernich and constructed between 1885 and 1887. Built in the classic style, the building is a large, circular space with an entrance hall (pronao) and aedicula. To coincide with the restoration of Casa Baldi (1959-61, see next article for more) and its launch as Casalgrande Padana’s new creative centre in Rome, architecture professor Paolo Portoghese - who designed the original building and oversaw the recent transformation - gave a keynote speech which was open to the public.
