The contest creates a positive synergy and a mutual rapprochement between architecture and industry.
The object of the competition AXA-PIMEC was to design at least three parts of GRC able to resolve the outer sheet of a ventilated façade or forming a coating which include specifications arising from GLS Consorcio Hormigón SLU. Projects should achieve socially useful results and be sustainable. While the contest itself promotes design among businesses.
In the contest were involved three sectors: Architects for Architecture – an association that oversees professional work of architects, as well as supports and promotes architecture as a cultural and social good, then GLS Consorcio del Hormigón S.L.U.- a company, which produce prefabricated parts and PiMEC – an organization representing the micro, small and medium enterprises of Catalonia.
The jury consists of Pilar Calderon, Ramon Sanabria, Sander Laudy and Aurelius Mora appointed by AXA, Santiago Llusera and Manel Castellnou from GLS Consorcio del Hormigón S.L.U. and a representative of PIMEC Eva Prats.
