Iris Ceramica Group’s new platform: continuous learning opportunities
By Editorial Staff -

The new web platform webcast.irisceramicagroup was born thanks to the longstanding collaboration between THE PLAN and Iris Ceramica Group.
Don’t be fooled; this is not just a simple website, rather a proper Online Learning Academy that offers architects the opportunity to carry out simultaneously their professional activity and high-level training thanks to courses approved by AIA CES-USA and CPD-UK for RIBA members.

The bond between the two companies has resulted in the international format The Architects Series”, a collection of documentaries created by THE PLAN MEDIA HOUSE and dedicated to some among the most famous contemporary architects. These videos take the viewer on a journey through major architecture practices such as Steven Holl Architects, BIG, Zaha Hadid Architects and many more.

In previous years, each Documentary video was associated with the recording of the Lecture held by the architect protagonist of the video at Iris Ceramica Group’s Milan showroom. During this past year, the program hasn’t stopped. Indeed, it has internalized new digital tools that smart working and several lockdowns have encouraged using. This has made it possible to take part in the events online by accessing the new platform webcast.irisceramicagroup.

Thus, The Architects Series continued with its scheduled program of events, with an even wider public of architects, professionals or maybe also enthusiasts, and with the promise to organize, when it’ll be possible, new events in Iris’ showrooms spread across Europe.

So, what is webcast.irisceramicagroup really?

Webcast is Iris Ceramica Group’s Online Learning Academy in collaboration with THE PLAN, where you’ll find news, events and other activities promoted by Iris. Among these, in a dedicated section, it’s possible to register and participate live, for free, in the world premiere of new The Architects Series documentaries that are to be followed by a Live Lecture held by the protagonist of the episode, with a Question Time dedicated to the public’s questions.

But wait, there’s more!

webcast.irisceramicagroup, besides allowing you to register to the live events, offers for free the opportunity to watch once again the previous episodes of The Architects Series - divided by architecture practice - which include the Lecture.

…But that’s not all, folks!

All architects who seek to combine work and high-level professional training in order to meet continuing education requirements, can simply register on the platform and attend the courses approved by AIA CES-USA and CPD-UK for RIBA members.
