Art School student wins exceptional Andalucía award

ALGECIRAS (Agencies) Despite the many problems with its building the Algeciras Art School (Escuela de Artes y Oficios) still produces excellence. One of the students, Andrea Martín has just won one of the Junta de Andalucía's top priozes for Plastic Arts & Design, in the section on Interior Design. Her award-winning project was titled Turning a Commercial Property into a Pharmacy (in Spanish, natch), and it is the only award in all available sections to be given in the province of Cádiz. (Prospero note: these kids are incredible! Their roof leaks, they have no heating or air conditioning, a good part of the roof is on the point of collapse, etc. etc. - yet there they are!)
