The projects could be located anywhere in the world, but had to significantly use Spanish ceramics and be completed between January 2015 - October 2017.
First-prize winners and special mentions were announced in each of the three categories: Architecture, Interior Design, and Final Degree Project. Scroll down to have a look at them. ARCHITECTURE CATEGORY First place: Bodega Mont-Ras by Jorge Vidal and Victor Rahola. Tiles by Cerámica Elias (cover image) The panel of judges particularly valued the industrial and rustic-type materials used in the project, which also reflects the capacity of the chosen materials to adapt to the layout of the various spatial geometries, adding a strong sense of character to the entire setting.

Construction starts for MVRDV’s redesign of the ’70s Vandamme Nord building in Montparnasse

First built by architect Pierre Dufau, the shopping center's glory days faded as it failed to adapt to a changing urban environment over the years.
MVRDV's restructuring scheme for the new Gaîté Montparnasse complex aims to improve its urban connectivity and to make it a pedestrian-friendly space. According to the latest details from MVRDV, the Vandamme Nord will be expanded into a 108,000 m2 mixed-use building with a new program on the roof, a hotel, office space, 62 social housing units, a 350 m2 kindergarten, and new entrances on Avenue du Maine and Rue Mouchotte. The Vandamme public library will be moved from its current underground location to the top of the building.

The tower is currently slated for a 2021 completion, and will be one of Singapore's tallest buildings.

Replacing a former parking complex built in the '80s, the 93,000 m2 tower will contain office and retail space, 299 residential units, and lush tropical greenery at the tower's base, core, and rooftop. Perhaps the tower's most distinctive feature is its exterior facade, which has vertical elements that are “pulled apart” to allow the greenery from inside to peek out, creating a “dynamic interplay of orthogonal lines and lush greenery”, BIG says.

Snøhetta unveils “Svart”, the Arctic Circle’s first energy-positive hotel

Designed for the tourism company, the Arctic Adventure of Norway,&nbsp;the hotel's name refers to its proposed location at the foot of the Svartisen glacier in Mel&oslash;y of northern Norway. Svart is also a tribute to the glacier's deep blue ice.
Located in the arctic environment where natural preservation is key, the circular hotel reduces its yearly energy consumption by approximately 85 percent and produces its own energy. Inspired by local vernacular architecture, Svart's design is based on the “fiskehjell” (an A-shaped wooden structure for drying fish) and the “rorbue” (a traditional seasonal house used by fisherman).
