The Freedom of The Press Monument, about to be built on the Monumental Axis in Brasília, has won one of the world’s most prestigious awards in Architecture. Our project was the winner of the World Architecture Festival Award 2014, in the category Culture – Future Projects, running against nine other international works. The announcement took place on Wednesday, October 1st, during an event that gathered professionals from over 50 countries in Singapore. The WAF award has only been given to three Brazilian Architecture offices before. We accept this accolade with great joy, a renewed enthusiasm and deep gratitude to our partners, friends and our team, all of whom made this achievement possible.

The Freedom of the Press Monument is a gesture made of glass.

Clean and solid, yet delicate as freedom itself.

It represents a perennial fight and reflects the culture of our people, based on common sense. This is where this translucent shape comes from.

It dynamically slices the surrounding space in two separate moments:

One for advancing in factual evidence, and the other, free to expose itself and speak loudly to the whole world.

And so, a new place emerges in Brasilia, that will welcome the Internacional Press Center but more importantly, a home for the symbol of all journalists.
