FAD Awards 2018

Mediterranean Vocation


The jury of the 60th FAD awards, chaired by the architect Anna Bach, has announced the results of its assessment of the 484 works presented. The winner in the Architecture section is the project Life Reusing Posidonia, submitted by Carles Oliver, Antonio Martíun, Joaquín Moya, and Alfonso Reina: fourteen social housing units in San Ferrán (Formentera) which perfectly satisfy the jury’s desire to acknowledge proposals for “high-quality social housing that uses resources obtained from the immediate environment.” A project similar in sensitivity, Can Picafort in Santa Margalida (Majorca) by TEd’A Arquitectes, came out on top in the Interiors section. In City and Landscape on the one hand, and Ephemeral Interventions on the other, the winners are Portuguese works: Praça Fonte Nova in Lisbon, by José Adrião, and the Pavilhão do Lago, by Azevedo, Crisóstomo, and Sobral. Finally, the Thought and Criticism award is shared by the books La recherche patiente, by Jorge Torres and Clara E. Mejía, and Thermodynamic Interactions, by Javier García-Germán.
