Cevisama to host Trans/Hitos 2013 with "Geometries" theme

Cevisama will again host the Trans/Hitosexhibition facilities for 2013, which this year will bear the slogan "Geometries," according to the Architecture and Design Area at the Castellon technology centre, which has been organizing the fair since it began in 2005.

Thanks to the stimulus of the Cevisama organization and in collaboration with ASCER, the three facilities that make up the display will be set up at the pavilions area in Feria Valencia’s central mall from February 5 - 8. Centro-Innovacion-Infancia

Two of them will be in the shape of a dome and they will respectively host the result of the 11th Architecture, Interior Design and PFC Ceramics Awards and the Expocátedra projects, from the Network of Chairs for Ceramics promoted by ASCER.The works in this exhibition will be selected by Victor Echarri, Director of the Alicante Ceramics Chair, and Ángel Benigno, a professor in this Chair.

The third facility will be a fragment of the Innovation Centre building for children, promoted by the Innovation Foundation for Children of the Valencia Region (FIICV), which is located in the Technological Park of Paterna.This Foundation is promoted by the Technological Institute of Construction (AIDICO) and the Paterna Town Council, in collaboration with the Technological Cooperation Platform for Innovation in the field of Children (PLAITEC). Several institutes in the REDIT network are participating in the project, including the ITC.It is funded by IMPIVA with the aim of acting as a forum for collaboration between different technology centres of the Valencia region to develop innovative technologies for application in a children's environment.

The centre, a section of which will be presented at Trans/Hitos 2013, will house a kindergarten and will have facilities in which to teach the first level of infant education (0-3 years of age) and the second level (3 to 6 years).It aims to disseminate, promote and foster technological innovation and environmental awareness among children.
