IMCL Honor Award, Built project - New Town of Cayalá, Guatemala

Cayala, Guatemala

Jury's comment:

One built project stood out from all the rest -- the new town of Cayala! The architectural character and extraordinary attention to human scale reinforces the excellent network of streets and public spaces. Creating a new town as an open neighborhood so that is can achieve the rich social mix of traditional communities seems very possible in this place – and we think it is very beautiful!

The nature of the architecture is such that it will be enhanced with age, and be able to withstand the inevitable additions and subtractions.
