    What suprises me - maybe am off toppic- that huge buildings can resist the wind, some earthquakes , etc. Sometimes with adjusted constructions such as bouncing fundaments etc. but the rest is a miracle to me. Those huge tall heavy buildings are often found in Asia (China,Indonesia etc.)

    3 May 2007 -- Move over Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers and Frank Gehry, the Spaniards have shown they can shine in their own country.

    After an invasion of so-called "starchitects" in recent years, Spain has finally seen two of its most famous architects recognised for work in their home land.

    Emilio Tuñón and Luis Moreno Mansilla, both 48, won the Mies van der Rohe Prize for contemporary architecture, an award funded by the European Union, for their futuristic-looking Museum of Contemporary Art (Musac) in León, northern Spain.

    Among the entries was work by the architects Zaha Hadid and David Chipperfield. Hadid, 56, has designed a number of buildings in Spain, the best known being the Spiralling Towers on Barcelona's waterfront which one critic described as "like a pile of Liquorice Allsorts on top of each other".

    The Mies van der Rohe award aims to recognise the work of major international architects in Europe, especially that of young designers. Other winners have included Hadid, for the Hoenheim terminal at Strasbourg airport, and the Dutch architectural superstar Rem Koolhaas, for an embassy in Berlin.

    The jury praised the "tectonic clarity and intelligent materialisation" of the Musac building.

    Tuñón said: "I would like to recognise the work of a generation of Spanish architects who are around 40 or 50 years old who have created good work and who are now recognised internationally. This has been a great satisfaction for us.

    "There is nothing worse for an architect than a building which lacks life. The Musac is vibrant."

    The building, which cost a reported £21.5m, was inaugurated in 2004 after three years' work. Tuñón said the much-admired multi-coloured façade was a "nod" towards León's cathedral. Inside there are arches reminiscent of a church. The Musac's director, Rafael Doctor, said: "Winning this prize is like winning an Oscar."

    Tuñón and Mansilla have both worked for one of Spain's most famous architects, Rafael Moneo, who has just completed the extension of the Prado Museum.
