COAM Awards 2016

The Madrid Institute of Architects (COAM) has announced the winners of the latest cycle of its yearly awards. In the main COAM Award, first prize went to the Royal Collections Museum in Madrid, a work of Emilio Tuñón and Luis Moreno Mansilla, which was lauded for its “excellent implantation on its site on an urban level, in terms of scale, and the building’s integration in the existing fabric.” On the other hand, the Luis Moreno Mansilla Award – which honors buildings and architectural operations carried out by COAM members outside the Madrid Metropolitan Area – was bestowed on Birmingham New Street Station in the United Kingdom, by AZPML – Alejandro Zaera-Polo; the Puma Energy headquarters in El Salvador, by Ruíz Pardo-Nebreda; and the Industria de Montajes Eléctricos complex in Don Benito (Badajoz), by José María Sánchez García. Finally, the the COAM + 10 Award went to the Town Hall and Town Square of Valdemaqueda (Madrid), a project of Paredes Pedrosa which, the jury stated, “deserves special recognition for having preserved the architectural and urban attributes that has made it an admirable work since it was first built.”
