This Innovation and Design with Ceramic Materials course has been organised since 2004 by the Barcelona Ceramics Chair, and seeks to establish partnerships with the ceramic material production trade through the original design of elements with architectural applications.
The course has three key modules: interaction with industry players, techniques for manufacturing ceramic materials and ability to design architectural elements.
The course’s main activities emcompass the theoretical, technical and practical aspects of ceramics; conferences with well-known architects, in which students reflect on ceramics and its link to the central themes of architecture; talks by experts and visits focused on offering a closer look at the material and its practical applications; and, finally, a contest in which participants design a ceramic element.
