TILE OF SPAIN AWARDS IN 2012 AND THE TECHTEXTIL PRIZE IN 2013
“A meeting of fabrics – l’unité flottante, inhabiting the Alexander”
The panel of judges described the project as: “the transformation and restoration of an old ship as a pilgrim hostel with an intervention that employs a patent of ceramic tissue, Flexbrick®. The contrast between solidity and lightness in the design is highly intriguing. And this suggestion is made clear in the drawings through which the idea is presented”.
Architect María-Dolores Padilla Ayuso, student of the Superior Technical School of Architecture of Madrid (ETSAM).
