The Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias (San Sebastián, 1956) has been awarded the 2020 Architecture Award from the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in London, as announced by the institution.

In a statement, the Royal Academy stressed that the recognition, which is granted for the third consecutive year, “honors the inspiring contribution to the culture of architecture.”

The jury, which was the British architect Norman Foster, responsible for the rehabilitation project of the Hall of Kingdoms of the Prado, “has recognized the lasting and vital tradition of public art when it comes to enhancing the quality of open civic spaces.”

The note also recalls that the work of Iglesias, such as the Ríos y Espacios Públicos series (2006-2008), «creates a sensation of public encounter, filling and emptying the water, combining it with both the show and an antidote to noise and rhythm of the surrounding urban life ».

The Royal Academy emphasizes that the collaborations of the Spanish artist «at the same time inspire and act as a reminder to the architects of the crucial role of providing public spaces to our cities».

“I am very happy to receive this recognition from the jury and the Royal Academy of Arts, particularly because it values ​​what I believe is an integral role of sculpture in the city, in the public space,” said Iglesias. The artist also stressed that she is interested in “the crossings between architecture and sculpture, creating spaces and moments for contemplation and reflection in the face of the chaos of contemporary urban life.” .
