Cevisama Increases Focus on Architecture and Interior Design
According to show organizers, Cevisama has invested considerable effort to add value to the commercial offering by putting together a program of top-level presentations set to be delivered by world-class figures.
The upcoming edition of Cevisama, the international event for the ceramic tile, bathroom furnishings and natural stone sectors that will take place January 28-February 1 at Feria Valencia, will reportedly increase its focus on architecture and interior design. According to show organizers, the international event has invested considerable effort to add value to the commercial offering by putting together a program of top-level presentations set to be delivered by world-class figures. Swiss architect and Pritzker Prize winner Jacques Herzog and French architect Dominique Perrault are two of the most eminent.
Coordinated by Luis Fernández-Galiano and subtitled “Material Arquitecture 2,” the program of lectures will address the implementation of architectural projects through six case studies: six buildings completed recently by contemporary masters will be explained by the architects themselves. On January 29, the first session starts with Enrique Sobejano of the Nieto Sobejano studio, who will present the Arvo Pärt Centre in Estonia, which pays tribute to the great composer. Next up will be Carme Pinós, who will be delivering the new Barcelona base for the legendary Escola Massana. The last speaker will be Jacques Herzog, who will be giving a detailed description of the successive projects that transformed London’s Bankside Power Station into today’s Tate Modern.
The second session, on January 30, brings a member of Harquitectes, Josep Ricart, to Cevisama. He will describe how the Cristalerías Planell building in Barcelona was turned into a civic center. Next, Ángela García de Paredes will show the Public Library built in Ceuta on an archaeological site. Lastly, Dominique Perrault will close the seminar with a presentation of his latest work, the colossal Exhibition and Congress Centre in León.
