Veronica Rudge Green Prize

Madrid Río


During the crisis Madrid Rio has been criticized for economic reasons, but no one has questioned its success in returning life to a marginalized part of the city. This has now been acknowledged, too, by the jury of Harvard GSD’s prestigious Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design, which has been awarded to the transformation of the Manzanares riverside, a work of the team headed by Ginés Garrido and composed of the Madrid studios Burgos & Garrido, Porras La Casta, and Rubio & Álvarez-Sala, in collaboration with the Dutch landscape architecture firm West End. Past winners include the metro of Porto, the integration of northeastern Medellín, and the Carré d’Art at Nîmes.
