The Lorenzo H. Zambrano Award was granted to Engineer Javier Manterola in recognition of his wide trajectory of infrastructure development in Spain, other European countries, and Latin America.

Some of Manterola’s projects include Príncipe de Viana bridge, “La Pepa” bridge, and the Osera del Ebro bridge for high-speed trains in Spain.

The Architect Marcelo Zambrano Scholarship was presented to architect Nuria Benítez Gómez, who graduated from the Universidad Autónoma de México. She will study for a Master’s of Research in Architecture at the Royal School of Arts in London, England.

This award is granted to young architects who show potential for contributing to the improvement of the culture of construction and design in Mexico.
