Winning projects

Gold Category

Olivos en Flor
Authors: Vanessa Gutiérrez Cortés
Studies: Master's Degree in Photography and Design

'Olivos en flor', by Vanessa Gutiérrez.

For the sensitivity and depth of this personal project. The Jury considers that the student has used a very pure language, with a very good visual quality of the images, which generates great emotion and impact on the viewer.

Silver Category

La naturaleza del conflicto
Authors: Maria Mazzanti i Claudia Rizo Patrón Kermenic
Studies: Master's Degree in Editorial Design

'La naturaleza del conflicto', by Maria Mazzanti and Claudia Rizo Patrón Kermenic.

For the courage of this editorial project, very risky on a graphic level, which shows with a free spirit the situation of the Colombian post-conflict. A work that explores new avenues and confronts in it two key concepts: botanical sampling and war, violence. The use of narrative in the project to discuss social tensions and differences in Latin America is very powerful.

Slow Down, Stop and Stay. A public space intervention
Authors: Shaun Barton, Lorenzo Damonte, Fiona Gather-Stammel, Marta Gutiérrez, Mira Kanj, Felix Köstinger-Lingitz, Ji-Qian Lai, Hung-Chi Li, Marcelo Reinoso, Laura Sánchez, Carlota Segu i Giulia Sportolari
Studies: Master's Degree in Ephemeral Architecture and Temporary Spaces

'Slow Down, Stop and Stay. A public space intervention', by several authors.

For the social impact of this intervention in space, in the city of Barcelona, specifically in the district of Ciutat Vella. For the students' great work of reflection on public space and the gentrification of the Raval. It is also important to highlight the rethinking of new uses of the Plaça dels Àngels through appropriation, involving the neighbours and all users of the square.

Authors: Ximena Balaguer and Yusey Quispe
Studies: Master's Degree in Furniture Design

'Calata', by Ximena Balaguer and Yusey Quispe.

For the simplicity and clarity of this project. We have valued the original idea and its essential resolution, which is developed through sustainable self-production to value the craft. The Jury also highlighted the possibility of creating the coat rack to suit all needs, so that there is not only a single design, but it evolves over time.
