The Homes from the Municipal Housing Department (EMV0) in Rafael Final Street, The reformation of the BBVA Headquarters in Alcala Street, The locale ‘Calle 54’ and the Maria de Molina Tunnel are but some of the projects which were awarded yesterday in the Urbanism, Architecture and Public Works 2003 Prizes which is held every year by the Town hall.
In this event, which brought together a number of architects, some of which had come from the funeral of Fernando Chueca Goitia, saw Ruiz-Gallardón hand over 11 prizes and offer 16 special mentions to other projects. However, 11 other prizes were not awarded as projects had not been presented or proposed.
