Winners of ideas competition for renovation of old Clesa factory

The competition for ideas for the revamp of the main shed of the old Clesa factory – designed by Alejandro de la Sota and located on Cardenal Herrera Oria avenue, in Madrid’s Fuencarral-El Pardo district – has resulted in a selection of entries which has now been made public. Promoted by Metrovacesa and the Madrid Institute of Architects in collaboration with the Alejandro de la Sota Foundation, the competition seeks to preserve the emblematic building and gain back its 37,926 square meters of floor area for new uses. Eighty proposals were submitted and there are three winners: ‘La Fábrica Cultural’ by Pedro Pitarch Alonso, ‘Mil Reflejos’ by Patricia Fernández García with Rubén Conde Gómez, and ‘Factory Garden’ by Adrián Martínez Muñoz and Pablo Izaga González.  A special mention has gone to ‘Dar Liebre por Gato’ by Alfredo Baladrón Carrizo (Vírgula i). The jury was presided by Metrovacesa director-general Carlos García León, and the members included José Manuel Calvo del Olmo, José María Ezquiaga Domínguez, Josep Llinás Carmona, Juan Núñez Berruguete, Luis Fernández-Galiano, and Carlos Rubio Carvajal.
