Three SMA projects recognized at the Prix Versailles 2019
Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos has been distinguished with special prizes at the Prix Versailles 2019 for the projects Solaz Los Cabos, ARTZ Pedregal, and The Landmark.
The Prix Versailles is an international prize promoted by UNESCO and the International Union of Architects, to award the design (interior and exterior) of retail projects in six major regions within seven categories: stores, shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, sports complexes, passenger stations, and campuses.
Its objective is to promote better interaction between the commercial and the cultural sectors. These two concepts are often seen as contradictory, but in fact, are connected by improving people’s lifestyles where both require creativity and beauty. Few examples achieve this and this award celebrates these projects.
Recently, the continental winners of the 2019 competition were announced. Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos obtained three special mentions: in the Hotels category with Solaz Los Cabos in “Special Prize Exterior”, and in the Shopping Centers category with ARTZ Pedregal in “Special Prize Interior” and The Landmark in “Special Prize Exterior.”
The worldwide winners will be announced in the international final to be held at UNESCO on September 12, 2019. The Jury will pay special attention to projects that adopt a sustainable development approach in its three components: ecological, social and culturalhttps://www.prix-versailles.com/inicio
