4th edition of the PIAM Architecture Prize

Until 7 May 2018

Matimex presents the fourth edition of the Matimex International Architecture Prize (PIAM), on this occasion dedicated to contemporary commercial spaces, with the slogan: “ComerciARQ. Espacios Comerciales Contemporáneos” (ComerceARQ. Contemporary Commercial Spaces).

Participants will design a space or recover an existing one with a global design which goes beyond the product and that it can be understood as a whole with the brand, the space and the sensations that can be experimented. This shift of focus conveys an evolution of the commercial space linked towards the new necessities of the consumer.

To showcase its support for the environment, the jury will take into account the use of material with a Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic finish as well as the choice for the project of ceramics with LEED or BREEAM certification. Also valued will be quality, originality, creativity, good use and conditioning of the group’s products.

The competition is open to professionals and students from the world of architecture, technical architecture, design, interior decoration, engineering and any profile within the range of these characteristics.
