The ”II City Awards” organized by Open House Madrid in its special edition of 2020, the EXarchitects team designed and manufactured in its fablab, the trophies to be awarded in each of the 5 categories. The awards ceremony took place at the end of the 6th Congress organized by Open House Madrid ”Green in the city” (link to the video of the congress).
For its design, it was proposed to make a piece that would honor the 6 editions of the festival to date and that would also turn out to be an attractive piece for the winners to show off in their professional or personal space.
The design consists of a 60mm thick birch plywood cube on which you can read Open House Madrid, which was engraved using a milling machine or CNC to give it depth. Likewise, and also by means of CNC machining, the deepest hole and the through-hole of the Open House Madrid logo were made, where the geometry was fitted, but on leaving the main volume, in polished aluminum.
The lower part of the trophy has laser engraving, six representative buildings of Madrid. In addition, these buildings are also representative of each of the six architects to whom the festival has been dedicated in its different editions:
Finally, also laser engraved, the name of the prizes, the category and the name of the winners.
