On February 7th 2019, The National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative Arts "González Martí" in Valencia, Spain introduced CloudGuide as the official application for the ‘Architectural Ceramics in Europe’ project. This project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union regroups information about over 150 buildings with applied ceramics across 22 European countries.
There is so much historical connection between European architecture and ceramics, one that tells a story and still to this day, plays a prominent role in the everyday life of people. A material that has been used in a variety of historical-cultural contexts, as well as for its decorative and architectural purpose to the use of its expression of traditions, lifestyles and social or economic behaviors. This can also be due to its characteristics and design possibilities, which explains why this material has been used in such a diverse and global way throughout history.
Through the CloudGuide app, the project results are now made accessible to a worldwide audience. One that allows any user to discover ceramics according to its cultural, historical, technical and artistic aspect by connecting museums, architects and designers across different European countries. No need to travel across 22 countries to immerse yourself in the world of ceramics, just download the CloudGuide app and discover the impressive results uncovered during this project.
