Recently awarded with the prestigious Swiss Architectural Award 2014, the work of the young and talented Spanish architect José María Sánchez, with several major buildings already completed before the age of 38, appears impressive in its dry and concise formal and tectonic coherence (at odds with most current architectural rhetoric, in Spain as well), and works consciously towards the redress of several contemporary concerns such as landscape intervention, programmatic ambivalence, heritage preservation, or modular construction, among others.
