Tile of Spain Award Winner Takes on an Iridescent Quality

The MUCA Auditorium and Music Complex in Alguena Spain shimmers in the sun thanks to Tile of Spain. This project by Estudio C O R (Miguel Rodenas + Jesús Olivares) was the 2011 winner of the Tile of Spain Awards for Architecture and Interior Design in the architecture category.

 

The job required the creation of a “low-cost” landmark, and iridescent ceramic tiling was selected for the exterior of the building. It is the iridescent Spanish ceramic tiles that offer a mother of pearl or rainbow appearance with changing light conditions.
