Cosentino, a worldwide group of reference in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, has announced the eighth edition of the Cosentino Design Challenge. The competition is limited to registered students in the school year of 2013-2014, from any school or international institute of higher education in the field of design, architecture, interiors and other related areas. In this edition the participants in the Design category are asked to focus on the theme “Cosentino and art”: they will be free to choose the type of area or worksurface, but they must carefully consider the relationship between art, space, vantage point and Cosentino products. In the Architecturecategory, on the other hand, the work involves choosing a historical or emblematic building and changing its function, freely selected by the student, while maintaining the focus on the external image. http://www.cosentinodesignchallenge.org/.
