Essays on Architectures and Ceramics by Cátedra Cerámica Madrid is a collection of texts whose aim is to bring together thinking about ceramic from a contemporary architectural perspective. The aforementioned objective of developing thinking about the spatial value of ceramic materials led the editors to ask a series of prestigious architects, professors to write a few architectural reflections that would constitute the essays contained in this small book.
In this first volume, the four invited architects have written texts about ceramics based on its use in their own architecture and their interest in thinking about it.
Arturo Franco offers an essay in which he looks at the future of ceramics by reviewing its history. The second text, signed by Javier Bernalte and José Luis León, speaking of their design for Business Incubator in Toledo, reflect on a constant element of architecture: the lattice. Finally, Francisco Cifuentes looks at the ceramic material from the construction of objects and tools that contribute to protecting man.
