It is a pleasure to announce that we have received three awards in the Sixth Edition of the NATIONAL EMPORIA AWARDS IN EPHEMERAL ARCHITECTURE IN 2018.
Two of the awarded projects have been designed for LEVANTINA, a world reference in the Natural Stone sector and innovation of construction materials for architecture and decoration oriented to design.
The third prize obtained was for the last temporary exhibition made for MARQ (Museo Arqueológico Provincial de Alicante), an archaeology museum that is committed to the renovation of the traditional exhibition system and which has on several occasions placed its trust into our work on the designs for the exhibitions that are entitling it of being the first archaeological museum of the 21st century.
COTO XPERIENCE – Gold Emporia for “Innovation in ephemeral architecture”.
Located in Pinoso (Alicante), Coto Xperience is a viewpoint that weighs 28,000 tons and is itinerant within the quarry Monte Coto, owned by LEVANTINA.
The project resolves a privileged panoramic view of the exploitation of marble and seeks to serve as a communicative and didactic platform for the external visitor to the stone industry. In addition, the project was finished in15 days, being of vital importance the total obtaining of the constructive materials from the reuse and recycling process of materials that were already in the quarry.
CERSAIE ” The Inhabited Ceramic “- GOLD Emporia to the “Best commercial stand design”.
The world’s most influential event in ceramic tiles and bathroom equipment is held every year in Cersaie, bringing together exhibitors from 41 countries, including LEVANTINA, which presented its latest generation of ceramics, TECHLAM in 2017.
The aim of this project was to build an “inhabited ceramic area”, a 100% open space that enhances the customer-business relationship; in which the ceramic material TECHLAM was the raw material that allowed this habitable, voluminous and sensual architecture to be built thanks to its large format and fine thickness.
RUPESTRE – SILVER Emporia to the “Best installation of a non itinerant ephemeral exhibition”.
“Rupestre, The First Sanctuaries” focuses on the paintings located in caves or “shelters” that were painted on the rock more than 10.000 years ago. It is a museographic project that extends along three exhibition halls of the MARQ and its totality invites visitors to make a journey through time trying to transport 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 lights that exalts the feelings.
