In Praise of the school


Having gone through 616 entries, the jury of the 61st FAD Awards, with Fuensanta Nieto chairing, named the winners. The FAD Award for Architecture went to the Playa Flamenca Secondary School in Orihuela (Alicante), by Alfredo Payá, praised for addressing “an extensive and repetitive educational program with the financial limitations characteristic of public works of this kind.” The FAD for Interior Design fell upon the restoration of the reading room of the Bank of Spain library, carried out by Matilde Peralta. The award for City and Landscape was won by Passeig Maritim del Prat de Llobregat, by Jansana-De la Villa-De Paauw Arquitectes; The Ephemeral Intervention prize was earned by ‘Mies Missing Materiality,’ an installation of Anna and Eugeni Bach; and the coveted International FAD Award went to the New Bund District Church in Shanghai, a work of the firm Ábalos+Sentkiewicz.
