YAS. Young Architects of Spain. 2008/2014

Curators: Jesus Aparicio, Jesus Donaire

Group and travelling exhibition

The bilingual exhibition shows that architectural excellence is found not only in the work of internationally renowned Spanish maestros, but also in the unknown work carried out in the studios of a new generation of professionals, which ensures a promising future for Spanish architecture.

The works were selected by means of a public competition open to all young Spanish architects. The more than 700 projects underwent an individual selection process by the members of an international jury composed of prestigious architects such as Alberto Campo Baeza and Manuel Blanco and the architecture critics Kenneth Frampton and Juhani Pallasma. Sixty-two architects under the age of 40 were chosen. The exhibition presents a variety of extraordinary works, rigorously constructed and deeply sensitive to their cultural or natural environment.
