At Carved in Stone Competition, the first of its kind from the leading Spanish brand Cosentino, architecture practices across the UK were invited to put forward their concepts for marble sculptures around the theme Life on Mars, juxtaposing this ancient material with a futuristic brief.
19.09.2019 Carved in Stone Competition received an influx of high quality entries, however a judging panel has now selected the five winning entries. The winning practises are: Cartwright Pickard, Foster + Partners, Hugh Broughton Architects, Ian Ritchie Architects and Tonkin Liu.
Cosentino’s partner in this competition, Cuéllar Stone, a Spanish company dedicated to special projects involving natural stone, was undertaking the challenge of bringing the practices’ forward-thinking concepts to life, carving the intricate designs out of blocks of 500 x 500 x 500 mm Macael Marble.
Once completed, the five designs were transported to London where they take pride of place in the Cosentino City London showroom during London Design Festival 2019 (14-22 September).
