Ceramic Tile Studies Department – Madrid

The start of the 2007-2008 academic year coincided with the creation of the Ceramic Tile Studies Department at the School of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Madrid. This Chair aims to provide students with a theoretical and practical insight and coherent training in the design and implementation of architectural projects using ceramics-based building systems.

The Ceramic Tile Studies Department -Madrid focuses on three areas of activity. The first is a series of three annual conferences that reflect on ceramics in relation to the central themes of architecture. The unpublished papers presented at the conferences are then included in a publication that is available to the public at the end of each conference series.  Secondly, and as part of the course programme organised by the Architecture Projects teaching unit in collaboration with the Building Department, in-depth work is carried out into building materials and construction, with ceramic tiles and their use forming a fundamental part of the course.

Finally, architecture students are given an assignment offering them the chance to put into practice the theoretical and technical knowledge acquired through the various initiatives of the Chair.
