“It is the Spanish architect, Rafael Moneo (born in 1937), Pritzker Prize in 1996, who won the VI Edition of the International Prize for Sacred Architecture for new religious buildings of Christian worship created worldwide. His “Chiesa de Iesu”, in San Sebastian (Spain), with its clean and compact forms, alternating solids and voids, won the jury over, which unanimously decided to assign it first prize.
Second place went to the New Church of the Parish of Kadon, in the province of diLamDong, in Vietnam, created by VN-A architects, using simple materials such as wood and iron, which enhances its relationship with nature and the opening of spaces outward”.
