The Ceramic Tile Studies Department of Madrid was created as a result of the agreement reached between the Technical University of Madrid and ASCER. In its effort to promote new ways of innovating, the IX International Congress of Ceramics and Architecture gives continuity to a project of many editions. As a result, the School of Architecture of Madrid hosts this meeting the 21th and 22th of April under the title «Ceramic, Handcraft and Technology».
This gathering seeks to share their experiences related to the investigation, innovation, construction and compositional application of non-structural ceramic materials in contemporary architecture. Consequently, researchers, PhD students, artists, engineers, writers, sociologists and other professionals from Architecture-related disciplines are invited to the meeting.
On the one hand, the IX International Congress of Ceramics and Architecture aims to place ceramics in an architectural context from an historical-artistic perspective. For this reason, it will take place a meeting of masters who have employed ceramic materials, restorations of ceramic buildings. On the other hand, its intention is to promulgate the work of contemporary architects who have used ceramics in their professional or academic work.
