New components for the ceramic textiles system
Second stand for Hispalyt in Construmat Exhibition
Casa Mingo construction
Designed by Vicente Sarrablo and Jaume Colom, this house takes advantage of the conclusions obtained from the first stand of Hispalyt. This is the first prototype of a house that uses different industrialized applications of ceramic textiles with a unique type of bricks: structured vaults, curved roof, drainable pavements, prefabricated panels in the fence and in the gabions.
First stand for Hispalyt (Spanish Association of Brick and Clay Tile Manufacturers) in Construmat Exhibition
Simultaneously to the execution of the three development projects, Sarrablo takes the opportunity to design for the first time a prototype stand based in reinforced ceramic sheets that shows the wide range of advantages of the industrialization system. Both specialized media and mass media spread broadly information about this innovative solution.
Patent, doctoral thesis and competitive research projects
From 1998 to 2002 Vicente Sarrablo develops his doctoral thesis on industrial systems to run reinforced ceramic vaults in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, rated Excellent Cum Laude. In 2003 it is requested the first patent of the system for reinforced ceramic vaults by industrialized sheets. Moreover, European and Spanish public funds are achieved to realise three competitive projects in order to develop the system.
