Category: ⚐ EN

Last month, [ecosistema urbano] was awarded the first price in the “ar awards for emerging architecture”, by the prestigious architecture magazine The Architectural Review (London).

More than 400 entries from 80 countries were competing for this award for emerging architects younger than 45 years of age, and three were the winners: our Ecobulevar in Vallecas, Wall House in Santigao de Chile by FAR frohn&rojas and the showroom FLEG Daikanyama in Tokio by Taketo Shimohigoshi/AAE. In the highly commended works we find another firm from Madrid – estudio FAM with their 11M Memorial – congratulations.

Many interesting people were in the jury: : Shirley Blumberg (Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects, Toronto), Peter Cook (Archigram, UK), Peter Davey (former editor of The Architectural Review magazine), Shuhei Endo (Shuhei Endo Architect Institute, Osaka), Jo Noero (Noero Wolff Architects, Cape Town) y Paul Finch (current editor of The Architectural Review magazine and president of the jury).
