Tile Academy
Brought to you by Coverings 2023

  7 AIA LU/HSW; 1 AIA LU/Elective

Equal parts strength and beauty, the timelessness of ceramic tile as a building material cannot be overstated. In a class of its own, tile blends the qualities of aesthetics, durability, resilience, versatility, and cost effectiveness to create spaces that combine an old-world feel with a modern twist on design. This academy guides learners in both the practical and the stylistic specification of tile for both interior and exterior applications with courses that delve into known challenges (and how to avoid potential pitfalls) as well as the latest tile industry standards. Highlighting the latest trends in tile—from green tiles, soft-textured, and flecked effect to extra-large format, extra-thick tiles, and tiles that support biophilia, the Tile Academy sheds light on what’s next in ceramic tile innovation, illustrating how and why tile continues to push architecture into new possibilities.
