Alfar de Los Tejares是西班牙最好的罗马陶瓷厂之一。工厂靠近一条永久性人工运河,周边还坐落着几家泥浆采石场。除了得天独厚的地理位置外,该工厂还因其规模以及在其场地中发现的考古遗迹而得名。该考古遗迹位于卢塞纳郊区,靠近市政污水处理厂,毗邻N-340国道,周边是茂盛的橄榄林与散落在国道两侧的工业建筑。

The Alfar de Los Tejares is one of the best examples of a Roman pottery factory in our country, both because of its location – next to a permanent water channel and several mud quarries – and because of its size and conservation. The archaeological remains are located on the outskirts of the city, next to the municipality’s treatment plant, bordering the N-340 to the north, in an area dominated mainly by olive groves and industries that appear around the national highway.

This archaeological complex, discovered and partially destroyed during the excavation works of a treatment plant, presents two periods of occupation, the first, as alfar, between the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, with productions of common ceramics and construction material; and a second, between the second half of the 4th century and the first decades of the 5th century AD, possibly as a dwelling. The remains are included in the excavation, which lowers the ground level at its location.

Alfar Romano Los Tejares展览中心则是为了保护这些珍贵的现存遗址而建造的单层建筑,堪称一个考古活动的容器。建筑师试图通过采用掺杂有玻璃纤维的石灰石膏饰面,结合彩陶材质营造出一种干燥陶土的外观效果,进而将建筑与自然景观融为一体,并使其与该地区的工业建筑区分开来。

The Alfar Romano Los Tejares Exhibition Center in Lucena is a shell building that develops on one floor, wrapping the valuable existing remains. The building is a container of archeology, we have tried to give a sensation of arid terracotta appearance with the facade finish, lime plaster with fiberglass, chromatic and ceramic concept, adapting to the natural landscape and differentiating itself from the industrial buildings in the area.

There are two areas, a preliminary entrance area with two skylights and a space below as a visitor’s route to the archaeological remains. In the first part of access, it will be used for holding events, exhibitions, conferences, presentations, etc. After passing through this multipurpose space, the continuous tour of a perimeter gallery, visualizing the site, serving as an exhibition space, where information about its history can be displayed through projections. The enclave has seven ovens of different sizes, a service area for the ovens and a third sector, made up of a warehouse that would perform the functions of pre-hatchery and warehouse.
