transforming force

With a project titled ‘La casa por el tejado,’ the Bizcay firm AZAB – established in 2018 by Cristina Acha, Miguel Zaballa, Ane Arce, and Iñigo Berasategui – won the competition for the commission to build four subsidized apartment buildings taking up entire urban blocks – with commercial spaces and parking garages – within the historical core of the city of Badajoz. The second and third prizes went to Paredes Pedrosa and Daniel Jiménez + Jaime Olivera, respectively. The jury – on which sat Sara de Giles, Blanca Lleó, Beatriz Matos, among others – praised the winning design’s “implantation on a very complex topography, its efficient insertion into the urban and monumental fabric, introducing transversal paths that ensure permeability towards the public space.” Seeking a solution of continuity with the existing residential scheme, the compact blocks repeat the apartment module around the courtyards, reproduce the surrounding residential typology, and have heterogeneous, bent, discontinuous roofs that help to integrate them into the neighborhood.

2018, an Anthology.  (...) As for architecture, economic recovery allows looking towards the future with hope. Though many studios are building abroad, important works have gone up in spain during 2018, like the Exhibition Hall by Dominique Perrault. Moreover, the number of interventions on existing buildings has increased, with noteworthy examples like the Market by Ravetllat and Rivas and the Civic Center by Harquitectes in Barcelona, or the project by Battle i Roig in Igualada. Along with prominent authors like Fermín Vázquez Consuegra or César Ruiz-Larrea, young studios like the Basque firm AZAB, the Madrid sudio elii, the Alicant office COR, or the Catalan practices NUA and SUMO Arquitectes sign some of the following 24 buildings, which testify to the strength with which Spanish architecture is willing to face the profession´s new challenges.
