'YAS': Young Architects of Spain
The primary aim of the Young Architects of Spain exhibition is to discover a generation of Spanish Architects under 40 years of age who are admired by their professional peers.
The 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. Curated by Jesús Aparicio and Jesús Donaire.
