Winning Project: ´A suburb with it´s own light´ by Carlos Bausá Martínez.
Having given special mention of the jury to the project: ´The Thin Yellow Line´ by Jódar Cristina Pérez, Antonio Ruiz and Andres Pina Vicente Torres.
´A suburb with it´s own light´ was the project most voted for by the local comunity, mostly for the easy comprehension of the model and for the material of cloth that permits the light to pass in color to reflect on the ground, glass having to do alot with this neighbourhood.
It is an visual urban intervention with a poetic weight.
For the other part, the project ´The Thin Yellow Line´ came out very praised by the jury for all the thought put into the project, to connect the suburb with interventions for public use, philosophy that fitted completely with that of the festival, and with the objective to unify and to serve.
Unfortunately it resulted with difficult comprehensibility for the people who were not accustomed to seeing models, and at a technical level, one was afraid that it would end up by having a more ephemeral character of the line of color that was joining them, a finished capability of being changed, and a line that can be erased could lead to the intervention remaining unconnected.
Anyhow it is necessary to say that the jury found it hard to decide since the projects were of a high quality.
