In spite of the difficult economic situation, the year has been marked by a moderate optimism at the first signs of recovery. Though some significant projects were halted, others moved forward, wrapping up one more year in which Spanish architecture has produced high quality buildings. The list of 24 works inaugurated during this period includes, along with buildings like the CaixaForum by Carme Pinós or the new Congress Center of Vegas Altas by Pancorbo, some interventions on existing structures, such as the Fine Arts Museum of Oviedo by Francisco Mangado, and the extension of an old school building by Gaudí, carried out by Pich architects.
