CSCAE Medal for Cruz & Ortiz

Rigorous Forms


Following in the wake of other leading Spanish architects, Antonio Ortiz and Antonio Cruz have received the Gold Medal awarded by Spain’s National Association of Architecture Institutes (CSCAE). Since they set up practice in 1970 in Seville to shortly afterward build there the housing development on Calle María Coronel, an icon of Spanish architecture of those years, the firm Cruz & Ortiz has executed many buildings considered important in Spain and Europe at large, from Santa Justa Station to the Spanish Pavilion at Expo 2000 and on to the renovation and enlargement of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, a work for which they were named knights of the Royal Order of the Netherlands Lion (see Arquitectura Viva 151 and 163).
