The architect F. Mangado, winner of the Berlin Art 2017 Prize


Berlin’s Academy of Arts (Akademie der Künste) has awarded the Art Prize, in the category of Architecture, to Francisco Mangado. This award is in recognition of his career as an architect, prominent in which are works such as the Fine Arts Museum of Asturias (2015), the Spanish Pavilion for Expo Zaragoza (2008), the Archaeology Museum of Vitoria (2009), Palma de Mallorca Congress Hall (2016), the Culture Centre and Church in Thiene (Italy, 1996) and Pey-Berland Square in Bordeaux (2004).

Mangado is a professor at the Higher School of Architecture of Navarre University. In June 2008 he founded the Architecture and Society Foundation, which works to favour the interaction of architecture with other disciplines in creation, thought and economy. In parallel to his academic activity and his dedication to the Foundation’s programmes, he works as an architect at his Pamplona practice.

For this professional work he has won, among others, the Andrea Palladio Architecture Award, the City of Thiene Architecture Award, the Architécti Prize, the Prize awarded by the CEOE, the FAD, the Urbanism, Architecture and Public Works Prize awarded by Madrid City Hall, the “Giancarlo Ius Gold Medal” awarded by the UIA, the García Mercadal Prize, the Spanish Architecture Prize awarded by the Higher Council of the Spanish Architects’ Association (CSCAE), London’s Copper in Architecture Award and the RIBA EU Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

The prize-giving ceremony will be held on Saturday 18 March in the Academy’s Building on Berlin’s Pariser Platz.
