Lluís Clotet, National Award in Architecture 2010
Recently, the winner of the National Award in Architecture was anounced: Lluís Clotet of Barcelona. The award, which was previously awarded to architects such as Oriol Bohigas, Santiago Caltrava and Matilde Ucelay, acclaimed Clotet as “an architect true to his time and aspiring to create a beauty without dogma”.
Clotet began his professional career with the foundation of the internationally recognized study, PER (together with Pep Bonet, Cristian Cirici and Òscar Tusquets) and was recognized with a number of awards in architecture, such as the Premio Nacional de Restaración (1980) and the Premi Nacional d’Arquitectura de Catalunya (1999).
The Barcelona native has not only made a mark in the field of architecture, but also in design. In fact, he has received a variety of awards from FAD and the Delta d’Or in his resumé and some of his works, such as the BD bell (Delta d’Or 1979) or the Hypóstila shelf (Delta d’Or 1980) are part of the collection of the Museu de les Arts Decoratives.
The Disseny Hub Barcelona would like to congratulate Lluís Clotet for this award and for his contribution to the world of architecture and design.
