Chings Yard Covent Garden. Intelligent Space Partnership. Six standout buildings by Rafael Moneo. Following the news that Rafael Moneo has been named as the architecture laureate for the 2017 Praemium Imperiale, here's a look at six of the Spanish architect's most prolific projects.

Six standout buildings by Rafael Moneo

The 2017 Praemium Imperiale is a prestigious art prize awarded annually by the Japan Art Association. Rafael Moneo is one of this year's five winners, alongside Latvian dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, Senegalese musician Youssou N'Dour, Iranian visual artist Shirin Neshat and Ghanaian sculptor El Anatsui. Moneo, 80, was born in Tudela, Navarra, but studied architecture in Madrid, obtaining his degree in 1961. After graduation he left Spain for Denmark, where he briefly worked for Sydney Opera House architect Jørn Utzon, before returning to Spain the following year.

In 1963 he received a two-year fellowship to study at the Spanish Academy in Rome, where he developed an interest in classical architecture. UNESCO. UNESCO works to assist countries to invest in science, technology and innovation (STI), to develop national science policies, to reform their science systems and to build capacity to monitor and evaluate performance through STI indicators and statistics taking into account the broad range of country-specific contexts.


Science policies are not enough. Science and engineering education at all levels and research capacity need to be built to allow countries to develop their own solutions to their specific problems and to play their part in the international scientific and technological arena. Linking science to society, public understanding of science and the participation of citizens in science are essential to creating societies where people have the necessary knowledge to make professional, personal and political choices, and to participate in the stimulating world of discovery. Science and technology empower societies and citizens but also involve ethical choices. Figure ground city site plans as CAD maps. Three Principles of Hybrid Green Building.
