The rest of the jury is made up of: Inês Lobo; Portuguese architect; David Lorente, founding partner of the H Arquitectes studio; Eugeni Bach, of Bach Arquitectes; Héctor Ruiz Velázquez, architect and alma mater of Ruiz Velázquez Architecture & Desig Team; Tomoko Sakamoto, editor specialised in architecture; and Ramón Monfort, of the Castellón College of Architects.
In the last edition of the Ceramic Awards, the winner in the architecture category was the project for the entrance to the Palma de Mallorca intermodal station by the architect Joan Seguí Colomar. This year, the registration period for the 18th Ceramic Awards is now open and the deadline for the presentation of projects is 24 October 2019.
