Giner de los Ríos Foundation, designed by Cristina Díaz and Efrén Garcia is the winner of 2015 COAM Awards. In 2003, due to the deteriorating conditions of the Foundation buildings, a process for the rehabilitation and expansion of its headquarters started with a design competition, whose winners are Cristina Díaz Moreno and Efrén García Grinda. Their proposal fully maintains the historical buildings -the house of Giner and Cossio, who existed before the arrival of the institution, and Macpherson Pavilion-. The rest of the buildings are replaced by a series of volumes related to each other through the garden, the space generator of the whole project. The idea of 'the garden as a meeting place' is preserved and becomes room continuously changing and showing its evolution over the pass of the seasons. A lively and active space recovered thanks to graphic and written documentation and the work of landscapist Teresa Galí-Izard.
