angle-left Gaudí Award presented to research projects on religious fact

On 27 May at 6:00 pm, the Sagrada Família cloister of Our Lady of Mercy hosted the ceremony presenting the awards for baccalaureate research projects and higher vocational training course projects. These awards recognise the students’ hard work learning through research related to religious fact and innovation in science, technology and literature that broaden our collective knowledge about Gaudí and the Sagrada Família.

First prize went to Alfonso de Pineda Lügstenmann, from Sagrat Cor de Sarrià, for his project titled “El hombre que se levantó de entre los muertos: Sobre la Evidencia Histórica de la Resurrección de Jesús de Nazaret”. Second prize was for the work titled “La Sagrada Familia. Las innovaciones con el paso del tiempo”, by Brezo Domínguez Prada at Colegio de Fomento Canigó. And third prize was awarded to Maria Monteagudo Bosch, a student at Institut Dolors Mallafré in Vilanova i la Geltrú, for her project “La evolución de la naturaleza en la arquitectura”.

The awards are organised by Ateneu Universitari Sant Pacià and the Christian School Foundation of Catalonia (FECC), with collaboration from Castellnou Edicions. At this third awards ceremony, the winners and their guests were present, as was Mons. David Abadías, Auxiliary Bishop of Barcelona, who welcomed the audience; Mons.
