“The exceptional situation that we are facing has not been able to stop the competition. Once again, we can boast of having received a greater number of projects than we did in the previous edition.”, says Adelina Salinas, coordinator of the Contest.
Santiago Alfonso, President of the Competition, “taking into account that the unusual situation we are facing has seriously complicated our daily activities, seeing the result of this year’s call makes us feel proud and encourages us to continue with this project, which from the beginning has been committed to the talent and creativity of future professionals. If there is one thing that has become even clearer to me during the review and assessment of applications, it is that design and architecture can and should provide real solutions to present and future problems.”.
