Carme Pinós

The Catalan architect Carme Pinós was distinguished with Spain’s National Prize for Architecture, an honor given by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility, and Urban Agenda with a 60,000-euro award. It is her second time to receive the accolade, albeit on a different count: in 1995 a particular work was being highlighted – the Boarding School in Morella, designed in with Enric Miralles – whereas on this occasion, the jury chaired by Álvaro Siza rewarded an entire career. A career which began in partnership with Miralles, with projects like the Igualada Cemetery Park and the Olympic Archery Range in Barcelona, to then go solo in 1991, beginning an oeuvre marked by formal expressivity and structural rigor in buildings like the Cube I and Cube II office towers in Guadalajara (Mexico), the Boquería Market extension in Barcelona, or CaixaForum Zaragoza. Given annually since the year 1932, the National Prize for Architecture counts among its eminent recipients Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oíza (1946 and 1954), Alejandro de la Sota (1974), Miguel Fisac (2002), Juan Navarro Baldeweg (2014), and Rafael Moneo (1961 and 2015).
