The jury’s decision was revealed on 7 June at the prize-giving ceremony staged at the Disseny HUB Barcelona, the FAD’s current headquarters.

Of the 484 candidatures entered, 37 works were shortlisted. This year’s juries, chaired by Anna Bach, Louisa Hutton and Carme Rodríguez, awarded the following recognitions:

Within this category, a special mention to "Casa da Arquitectura na Real Vinícola" in Matosinhos, Portugal, the work of Guilherme Machado Vaz.

*This category of the FAD Awards includes texts and publications on city, landscape, architecture, interior design, etc. that have significantly contributed to fostering debate and critique on the Iberian Peninsula.
