Land Rover Born 2018 Awards Bombas Gens

Ramón Esteve has been awarded the Land Rover Born Prize in the Architecture section to his work in the rehabilitation project of the Bombas Gens Centre in Valencia; a former factory with an unquestionable social-historical value and one of the rare remaining examples of the industrial architecture of the thirties. The new facilities have been created as an internationally renowned multi-use space where Fundació Per Amor a L’Art will carry out its three- branch activity (arts, society and research).

 The Land Rover Born International Awards, created by Jean Christophe Chopin eight years ago, recognize the creative talent that successfully brings together innovation and functionality in an aesthetic way in six different sections: Architecture, Technology, Fashion, Home, Sports and Mobility.
