España 2023 Spain Yearbook (AV 253-254)
Arquitectura Viva, 2023
An overview of the best architecture in Spain that takes stock of architectural issues and trends in the field, placing them in the context of cultural, political, and economic events. The selection of 24 works reflects commitments to sustainability, materialised in buildings which use resources more efficiently. This includes refurbishments like Ombú for Acciona by Foster + Partners in Madrid and Palace-House by Tuñón & Albornoz in Cáceres. Nieto Sobejano and Alcolea, Ercilla, and Tárrago promote sustainability through courtyards and building orientation in university buildings, while other projects rely on low-impact, recyclable, or locally sourced materials like wood or ceramic.
