Trans/Hitos 2016 Promotes Harmonies between Multidisciplinary Ceramic Communities
Trans/Hitos 2016 “Harmonies” is the Ceramics for Architecture Exhibition that reportedly aims to launch new ideas and propose alternative uses for ceramics. Due to the cooperative work of professionals from different disciplines linked to art, design, architecture, interior decoration, and technological advances, the show reportedly provides spaces for young future architects, inviting them to delve into all the advantages that the integration of ceramics into their projects affords. The show will be hosted February 1-5 in the Centre Mall of the Valencia Trade Fair in Valencia, Spain.
According organization, “We have chosen the motto ‘Harmonies,’ understood as the balance, proportion, and appropriate correspondences between the different units of a professional group. A group made up of companies and professionals from different disciplines and starting points working together on a common project aimed at promoting and showcasing the capabilities of ceramics. Once again, Trans/Hitos will be featuring architects, designers, manufacturers, technicians, communicators... proposing, solving, and building environments that are references for future applications of products being fabricated today in the ceramic industrial context. With ‘Harmonies,’ Trans/Hitos is back to provide a visionary approach that mirrors the spectacular resurgence of ceramics in contemporary architecture.”
This twelfth Trans/Hitos event reportedly will be exhibiting noteworthy projects emerging in the Network of Ceramic Tile Studies Departments, set up by ASCER, which have been running since 2004. At another of the installations, inside a geodesic dome, 7 m in diameter, an exhibition can be viewed of the prize-winning projects in the 14th ASCER Ceramics Awards.
The project entitled “The Little House of Paper” by the Mixuro studio will also be displayed. This is the prize-winning project of the competition organized by Cevisama, ASCER, and ITC for architects and interior designers aimed at energizing the Trans/Hitos space.
The exhibition area will be rounded off by a new project currently being developed at the University of Harvard GSD (Graduate School of Design), led by architect Martin Bechthold, based on the ceramic extrusion technique.
