Fabrizio Barozzi and Alberto Veiga?s new headquarters for the Consejo Ribera De Duero (a centre for promotion of “Ribera del Duero” D.O.C. wine) was assigned the most important award, the International Barbara Cappochin Prize. The judges chose it ?because it combines the aesthetic, functional and sustainable qualities the Prize is intended to promote?.
Prizes and acknowledgements also went to other projects, such as the “Giancarlo Ius” Gold Medal awarded to Spanish architect Jaime Magen for the Environmental Department of Saragozza, the honourable mentions for architect Marìa Hurtado de Mendoza?s Centro Madrid Salud de Usera (Spain), Claudio Nardi?s Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow (Poland) and Rubens Cortes?s “Marìa Lejárraga” Public Library in Granada (Spain).
