Ceramics of ItalyThe top winners in the 2014 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition are rewarded threefold. The award-winning designers and architects in the commercial, residential, and institutional categories each receive a $4,000 cash prize, a trip to Bologna to attend Cersaie, and, of course, the recognition that comes from being honored at a press conference during Coverings.


Sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica and the Italian Trade Commission, the competition was open to North American firms.

The commercial award went to Dallas-based Corgan Associates for its renovation of the vast atrium within the 1970’s Plaza of the Americas. Corgan’s work entailed transforming this 64,000-square-foot space, the connector between the project’s two mixed-use towers, into a tiered indoor park offering additional retail and restaurant opportunities.


A residence in Los Angeles’s elegant Hancock Park neighborhood took the award for collaborators D.I. Group and Adeet Madan. The 5-bedroom house is a mash-up of Asian and Italian influences coming together in a way glorifies the SoCal lifestyle.
It’s back to the East Coast for the institutional winner. In Philadelphia, MGA Partners designed Temple University’s Morgan Hall, a housing, dining, retail venue occupying a full city block of the urban campus.
