The motivations
The awards of the international Jury are awarded for the following reasons:

Golden Lion for Best National Participation to Spain for a concisely curated selection of emerging architects whose work shows how creativity and commitment can transcend material constraints.

Special mention as National Participation to Japan for bringing the poetry of compactness to alternative forms of collective living in a dense urban setting.

Second special mention as National Participation to Peru for bringing architecture to a remote corner of the world, making it both a venue for learning as well as a means for preserving the culture of the Amazon.

Golden Lion for the Best Participant in the 15th Exhibition REPORTING FROM THE FRONT to Gabinete de Arquitectura (Solano Benítez; Gloria Cabral; Solanito Benítez – Paraguay) for harnessing simple materials, structural ingenuity and unskilled labour to bring architecture to underserved communities.

Silver Lion for a promising young participant to NLÉ (Kunlé Adeyemi – The Netherlands) for a powerful demonstration, be it in Lagos or in Venice, that architecture, at once iconic and pragmatic, can amplify the importance of education.

Special mention to the Participant in the 15th Exhibition REPORTING FROM THE FRONT to Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo (Italy), for her perseverance in using the rigours of her discipline to elevate the everyday into timeless works of architecture.

Under the title “UNFINISHED”, the selected projects by curators Iñaqui Carnicero and Carlos Quintáns show the architects’ response to the economic and construction crisis over the past years in Spain through virtues that can become strategies or creative speculations which are capable to subvert the past condition into a positive contemporary action.

The exhibition is divided into four areas which deal about the pavilion’s theme:

7 photographic series
55 selected works
12 selected entries from the open competition
11 interviews will fill with graphic and intellectual content the Spanish pavilion

Each area, just as each project, generates synergies among each other while the whole exhibition revolves around the central space which is capable to be transformed in order to accommodate different activities from colloquiums to presentations or projections.

The exhibition at the Biennale Architettura 2016 will remain open from 26 May to 27 November 2016.
