Rogers wins Lion

Richard Rogers wins his first Lion (RIBA Stirling Prize) for the Barajas Airport in Madrid, not to be outdone his National Assembly in Wales was also nominated for the prize.

The prize awarded to architects annually for the building that has made the greatest contribution to British architecture, has managed to evade Rogers despite his international popularity.

I happened to pass thru Madrid last week and was totally amazed by this place. The transfer signage was elegant as well. Two terminals connected by underground shuttle. It all worked beautifully. Each directional sign indicted how many minutes to desination (gate H..13 mins, gate H 7 minutes, etc.) looks alittle difficult to keep dusted however...small complaint.
