Winners for FAD Thought and Critique 2017


This category of the FAD Awards includes texts and publications related to the city, landscape, architecture, interior design, etc. that have contributed in a substancial way to stimulate discussion and critique in the Iberic peninsula.

Among the six shortlisted entries in the 2017 the award has been ex aequo for:

-Teorías e historia de la ciudad contemporánea (Theories and history of the contemporary city), by Carlos García Vázquez. Jury's appraisal: This book is the product of the considerable intellectual maturity of a professor in Architectural Composition, head of research, thesis supervisor and researcher. The work delivers a new systematisation of a hundred years of urbanism in a transdisciplinary vision between sociology, history and architecture.

-After belonging, by Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco, Ignacio González Galán, Carlos Mínguez Carrasco, Alejandra Navarrete Llopis and Marina Otero Verzier. Jury's appraisal: For its internationality and the treatment of a classic theme updated for the 21st century, the curatorship of the Oslo Architecture Triennale is presented as an audacious, committed and innovative action that has been successfully dealt with and which opens up new avenues of research.
