The 15th edition of the Marmomacc Stone Academy’s continuing education program on stone design for architects was another example of the show’s international dimension. A total of 29 architects from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., India, South Africa and Malaysia received scholarships for this year’s program. The architects spent five intensive days learning about design with natural stone, earning more than 20 AIA credits. In addition to classroom lectures and discussions, participants visited a nearby quarry and various processing facilities and spent almost an entire day touring Marmomacc. The program ended with a day in Padova, hosted by Fila Industria Chimica, which included factory and R&D laboratory visits, as well as a guided tour of the town of Bassano del Grappa.

Marmomacc’s continuing education program is co-sponsored by Stone Worldand recognized by the American Institute of Architects, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the South African Institute of Architects.
