Once again, this year the selected setting was the Baluarte Palace in Pamplona and coinciding with the celebration of the "Less Architecture, More City" convention organized by the Architecture and Society Foundation, in which Andreu World is an active participant.
Architects Dominique Perrault and Francisco Mangado were in charge of presenting 17th International Design Contest prizes.
More than 500 people attended the event, in which the two winning projects of the contest's most recent edition were presented, and the prize money was awarded. The first prize was awarded to the "Mediterranean" project by Hélène de Salvatore from Brussels (Belgium) based on its simplicity, elegance and uniqueness in its seat type. For its part, the second prize went to the "Cestino" project from Chung-Yen Chang, a Milan (Italy) resident, for being a very fun and contemporary chair, and very consistent with its development.
With 28,295 contestants from 124 different countries, the International Design Contest has become a reference event and a platform for disseminating talent, creativity and design throughout the world.
The 5th International Convention of the Architecture and Society Foundation - in which Andreu World is an active part - had the city as the protagonist to reflect on new forms of urbanism from dimensions such as ecology, sustainability mobility or the humanization of public spaces.
