Second Prize for our competition entry “Centro de Arte de las Arquerías de Nuevos Ministerios”

Our project for the Centro de Arte de las Arquerías de Nuevos Ministerios, in Madrid, was awarded second prize at the competition organized by ENAIRE Foundation. The proposal takes as a starting point the recovery of the essence of the arcades, restoring its nature as a filter and reclaiming the “Gran Plaza” as a great public space for the city. The rehabilitation strategy of this new Art Center proposed by us is governed by four guidelines that will make the new center a social and cultural venue of Madrid city: recovery, transparency, identity and functionality.
