Prizewinner: distinction


Municipal mortuary

Léon, Spain

BAAS has built a municipal mortuary for León in Spain which amazingly contrives to be dignified and even noble in the middle of fast burgeoning housing estates. Command of topography, light and understanding of the nature of the rites of passage ensured that this complex had to win a distinction.
