This year’s jury was chaired by Manuel Ruisánchez, a member of the COAC’s Cultural Committee, and comprised architect Anna Rovira from Osona; architect Maria Sabaté from Anoia; architect Claudina Relat from Bages; and Mònica Pozo, also an architect from Bages, who served as secretary. The jury highlighted the excellent quality of the projects presented at the Architecture Exhibition of Central Catalonia, especially bearing in mind the ongoing economic crisis in which they were executed.
The Architecture Exhibition of Central Catalonia can be seen in September at the exhibition rooms of the Osona regional office (Plaça Bisbe Oliba, 2, Vic). The exhibition will then travel to Manresa and other towns in the participating counties (Anoia, Bages, Berguedà, Moianès, Osona and Solsonès). All the projects presented for this year’s contest can be seen on the Architecture Exhibitions website.
The presentation ceremony of the seventh Architecture Exhibition of Central Catalonia was sponsored by SQUARE and supported by Puig-reig town council.
