Spanish architects Javier Cenicacelaya and Iñigo Saloña have been awarded the Rafael Manzano Martos Prize for Classical Architecture and Monument Restoration, presented in partnership by the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and philanthropist Richard H. Driehaus.
The Manzano Prize, awarded Thursday (Oct. 23) in Madrid at the Museum of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, recognizes Cenicacelaya and Saloña for their restoration projects, such as the restoration of the Palace of the Regional Government of Bizkaia, and new construction projects, including the School of the Holy Family, the rural center of La Rigada and a building on the historic street of Lacken in Brussels.
Michael Lykoudis, Francis and Kathleen Rooney Dean of the School of Architecture, stated, “Javier Cenicacelaya’s and Iñigo Saloña’s work has been a lighthouse for many architects who longed for a way of building that expressed a reverence for a sense of place and dignity of local culture. Their work has since engaged tradition and modernity with sensitivity toward the critical issues of our time and an ardent optimism about the future.”
