Plates made of grey-brown dolomite and glass sheets appeared on the facade of the new building. Finishing works are slowly coming to an end and, if everything is ok, the building will be ready in autumn. Professor Ewa Kuryłowicz from Kuryłowicz&Associates studio is the author of the project.
The 6th Biennial of Granite Sculpture (formerly known as the International Symposium of Granite Sculpture) will start on 13 July. This event is under auspices of Centrum Rzeźby Polskiej (the Polish Sculpture Centre) in Orońsk and Professor Jerzy Fober is its artistic commissioner.
The 32nd Carrara Marmotec fair (21-24 May) was visited by 223 companies and only 5,730 specialists. It is no surprise then that the comments which summarised this Italian event mentioned low attendance and treated it as a cause for reflection over the condition of the event in Carrara.
In spite of the fact there is still a lot of time to the next year’s STONE+TEC 2015, the organisers are not wasting their time. The exhibition registration will start in May, and everyone that will send their applications by 31 July 2014 will be offered special discounts.
