FIRST PRIZE: AGUA
Xavier Espinós Bermejo, Estefanía Fernández-Cid Fernández-Viña, Lucía Espinós Bermejo and Rodrigo Toro Sánchez
The winning proposal, awarded with 12.000€, has been the one developed by the team of architects composed by Estefania Fernandez-Cid Fernández-Viña, Xavier Espinos Bermejo, Lucia Espinos Bermejo, and Rodrigo Toro Sanchez, who, last year, had already obtained an honourable mention for their project for Grajal de Campos.
Due to the high quality of the rest of the proposals, the jury also awarded three honourable mentions, 2.000€-worth each. The three projects, all of which of great beauty, also aimed to retrieve the place’s memory, returning its values to the heritage of the area, keeping alive the footprint of its history.
FIRST PRIZE: Uniting the City
Patrick Alles, Matthew Blumenthal and Megan Zhang
The jury decided to award the first prize, totalling 12.000€, to the north-American team composed by Patrick Alles, Matthew Blumenthal and Megan Zhang because of their proposal being the one which best solved the needs of the area at an urban scale.
The jury also awarded three honourable mentions, 2.000€-worth each. These three projects also suggested developing proposals which were very attractive and sensitive in terms of taking into account traditional shapes, local materials and the work of the artisans in the area.
FIRST PRIZE: “PLURIBUS UNUM”
Abelardo Linares del Castillo Valero and Elena Jiménez Sánchez
The jury has decided to award the first prize, totalling 12.000€, to the proposal titled “Pluribus Unum”, designed by the architects from Seville Abelardo Linares del Castillo-Valero and Elena Jimenez Sanchez, who were also awarded an honourable mention for their proposal for Borox.
Even though honourable mentions were not contemplated at first for this location – since the design competition was exceptionally reconvened thanks to the help and interest of Jaca’s Town Council itself -, the jury decided to highlight one of the proposals even if it was not awarded with any sort of economic compensation. It highlighted the project of the square proposal titled “Plaza de Santiago” which was highly appreciated by the jury and was developed by the architecture studio Fairfax & Sammons Architects.
FIRST PRIZE: “KALATHOS”
Aritz Díez Oronoz and Imanol Iparraguirre Barbero
The winning proposal selected by the jury, awarded with 12.000€, was the one under the title “Kalathos”, by the architects from the Basque Country Aritz Diez Oronoz and Imanol Iparraguirre Barbero, who also won the first prize of this competition in the 2016-2017 call with their proposal for Grajal de Campos.
