Minister José Luís Ábalos celebrated the decision on his social media pages: "I have just spoken with architect Alberto Campo Baeza to inform him that he has been named as the 2020 winner of the National Prize in Architecture in recognition for his independent creativity and his academic and professional contributions to architecture."

The Prize for Architecture has been awarded annually to an architect since 1932. Past winners include Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza (1946 and 1954), Alejandro de la Sota (1974), José Antonio Corrales and Ramón Vázquez Molezún (1948 and 2001), Miguel Fisac (2002), Juan Navarro Baldeweg (2014), Manuel Gallego Jorreto, (1997 and 2008) and Rafael Moneo (1961 and 2015).

This year, the panel overseeing the award consisted of Alvaro Siza Vieira, last year's winner, Manuel Gallego, Estrella de Diego, Elisa Valero, Carme Pigem, Inmaculada Maluenda and Lucía Cano, as well as the Director and Subdirector of Urban Planning and Architecture.

Alberto Campo Baeza is Professor Emeritus at ETSAM UPM, an academic of the Royal Academy of the Fine Arts, a winner of the Tessenow Medal and the Arnold Brunner Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York, and an International Fellow of the Royal Insitute of British Architects as well as the American Institute of Architects.

In 2017 Campo Baeza was awarded the Official Chamber of Architects Prize as well as the Attolini Prize from the Universidad Anahuac in Mexico. In 2018 he won the Piranesi Prize from the Accademia Adrianea in Rome and, in 2019, he won the gold medal for architecture from the CSCAE (Consejo Superior de los Colegios de Arquitectos de España).
