The Awards COAM are annually given by the Architects’ Association from Madrid to the best architecture achievements in the region of Madrid. See here the awarded works.
The Cultural Factory Matadero Madrid, whose design and construction have been achieved by Angel Borrego Cubero along with his Office for Strategic Spaces, was nominated to the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture Mies van der Rohe 2015.
Angel Borrego Cubero was awarded the 1st Prize COAM’14 (Madrid Architects Association) for his documentary “The Competition”: “(..) The great interest of this documentary work lies not only in the fact it gives information about the procedures and tools of architecture competitions, but it also builds a complex, and uncomfortable, cinematic story that encourages reflection and discussion, on the real interest of Architecture “star-system” as well as the suitability of this type of competition to satisfy the real needs of society (Emilio Tuñón, Bill of COAM’14 Awards)
