IX Biennial of Spanish Architecture 2007


Cube Tower

Structural clarity, environmental concern, constructive quality and the desire to offer a powerful and attractive urban image are some of the reasons put forward by the jury of the IX Biennial of Spanish Architecture to grant its highest distinction to the Cube Tower, a building by Carme Pinós that boldly lifts its seventy meters in height in the most commercial district of the Mexican city of Guadalajara. Other awards presented by the jury of the biennial are: the Young Architecture Award for the Arts Center of La Coruña, by Victoria Acebo & Ángel Alonso; the Collective Housing Prize for the housing, school and kindergarten complex in Barcelona, by Jaime Coll and Judith Leclerc; and the recently created Urban Environments Accessibility Prize, shared by the project for mobile train platforms in the historic center of Vitoria, by Roberto Ercilla and Miguel Ángel Campo, and the pedestrian footbridge in the Vallparadís Park of Tarrassa, a work by the studio RGA, formed by the architects Pere Riera, Josep Maria Gutiérrez, Josep Sotorres, Montserrat Batlle and Barto Busom.
