Casalgrande Padana Grand Prix: registration for the 12th edition is now open

Registration for the twelfth edition of the Grand Prix, the architecture contest created, designed and organised by Casalgrande Padana, is now open.

Thirty years of history, eleven editions, more than 1700 projects from all over the world: all this is Casalgrande Padana’s Grand Prix.
The twelfth edition of the contest is dedicated to works completed in the period from January 2016 to December 2021. Applicants can submit projects that feature Casalgrande Padana ceramic materials in public and private, new and restored buildings, interiors and exteriors.
The Grand Prix is open to all designers (architects, engineers, interior designers, private and public technical departments, architectural and interior design firms) who have created works using Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles for floorings and coverings of any type. Applications can be submitted by individual professionals or groups of professionals with a team leader.
The results of every edition of the Grand Prix are collected in Casalgrande Padana’s Creative Book, created and distributed in collaboration with Casabella. This prestigious international architecture magazine has been at the centre of the design-related cultural debate for over ninety years. The Creative Book is a precious volume that outlines the evolution of ceramic and its application in architecture. Each winning project is described in detail to open new paths for research and experimentation.
The Grand Prix recognises the projects that best emphasise the technical properties and creative potential of Casalgrande Padana’s porcelain stoneware. Winners are selected among projects hailing from all over the world, thereby bringing together different experiences and contributing to the debate on architecture, design, and technological innovation. This architecture contest is a major opportunity to verify and explore the state of the art of architecture.
