As every year since 1993, the Yearbook of 'AV Monographs gathers'
gathers the best buildings completed in Spain over the past twelve
months, taking stock of its characteristic high quality despite the
crisis that still affects the field. The year that saw the Pritzker go
to the Catalan studio RCR Arquitectes, and the establishment of the
Norman Foster Foundation in Madrid, also witnessed important
inaugurations like that of the Botín Centre in Santander – the first
building by Renzo Piano in Spain –, the Congress Center in Palma by
Francisco Mangado, or the new stadium of Atlético de Madrid in the old
‘Peineta’, by Cruz & Ortiz.
