Tile of Spain announces "Reign in Spain" winners

January 6, 2011

VALENCIA, SPAIN -- In November, Tile of Spain launched the second edition of the "Reign in Spain" A&D Tour campaign to select four architects and designers to participate in its annual trip to Spain to learn about Spanish tile. Over the course of the month, Tile of Spain received more than 70 quality applications from firms large and small in all regions of the country -- a 60% higher return over last year. After much determination, the four winners were announced. They include: Bob Borson, an Associate Principal and architect at Bernbaum Magadini Architects in Dallas, TX; Andie Day, an award-winning interior designer who owns a boutique studio in Boston's North End; Scott Knudson, Vice President of Design for Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners, which has offices in Washington, DC, and Gaithersburg, MD; and Lira Luis, a global American architect specializing in organic architecture.
Tile of Spain is the umbrella brand managed jointly by the Trade Commission of Spain in Miami, FL, and the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturer's Association (ASCER) in Valencia, Spain. The annual media trip to Spain coincides with Cevisama, the International Ceramic Tile and Bath Furnishings Show held annually in Valencia. From February 4 to 12, 2011, the group of architects, interior designers and journalists will travel to the cities of Zaragoza, Teruel and Valencia to take in Spanish architecture, culture, culinary temptations -- and in particular, the numerous tile displays at Cevisama.
