Adeje’s Plaza de España Through to Singapore Finals
The ambitious project centred around the remodelling of the Plaza de España in Adeje has successfully gone through to the finals of a grand competition for architectural excellence.
The finals of the World Architecture Festival will take place in October in Singapore with around 8,000 art enthusiasts attending.
Adeje’s Plaza de España will be competing against other great feats from around the world, including masterpieces from China, the US Australia, the UK, Switzerland, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada.
Designed by the Canarian architect Fernando Menis, the Plaza de España falls in the ‘new and old’ category, due to the contemporary features added by the remodelling of the traditional space. The area – which has been more than doubled in size – is home to the Museo Sacro, a stylish veranda and several municipal offices.
The remodelling of the area has generated some much-need new leisure areas for the town, whilst still respecting its culture and heritage.
