EMPORIA Awards 2018

We are very happy to announce that we have received three awards in the Sixth Edition of the 2018 EMPORIA NATIONAL AWARDS FOR EFFECTIVE ARCHITECTURE.

Two of the award-winning projects have been carried out for LEVANTINA, a world reference in the Natural Stone sector and in the innovation of building materials for architecture and design-oriented decoration.

The third prize obtained was for the last temporary exhibition held for the MARQ (Provincial Archaeological Museum of Alicante), an archaeological museum that is committed to the renewal of the traditional exhibition system and has already relied on us on several occasions to work on the exhibition designs that are earning it the title of being the first archaeological museum of the XXI century.

COTO XPERIENCE – Emporia de Oro for “Innovation in ephemeral architecture”.

Located in Pinoso (Alicante), Coto Xperience is an itinerant 28,000 ton viewpoint inside the Monte Coto quarry, owned by LEVANTINA.

The intervention resolves a privileged panoramic view of the extraction of marble and seeks to serve as a communicative and didactic platform for visitors outside the stone industry. In addition, the project was carried out in only 15 days, being of vital importance to obtain all the construction materials from the reuse and recycling of materials found in the quarry itself.

CERSAIE “Inhabited Ceramics” – Golden Emporia for “Best Design Trade Fair Stand”.

Every year, the world’s most influential ceramic tile and bathroom equipment show is held at Cersaie, bringing together exhibitors from 41 countries, including LEVANTINA, which in 2017 presented its TECHLAM state-of-the-art ceramics.

This project sought to build an “inhabited ceramic”, a 100% open space that would favor the client-company relationship; in which the TECHLAM ceramic material was the raw material that made it possible to build this habitable, voluminous and sensual architecture thanks to its large format and thin thickness.

RUPESTRE – Silver Emporia for “Best mounting of a non-traveling ephemeral exhibition”.

MUSEOGRAPHY and Architecture Photography

“Rupestre, The First Sanctuaries” has as its protagonist the paintings present in caves or “shelters” that were painted on the rock more than 10,000 years ago. It is a museographic project which is spread over three exhibition halls of the MARQ and which as a whole invites visitors to take a journey through time, trying to take them to the place where the works were made, through an architecture that activates the springs of memory and a set of textures, colors and play of light that exalts the sensations.
