Over the last years, coinciding with the growing social movement that aims for the introduction of a real environmental sensitivity in the European society, a new generation of architects has appeared in Spain. They plan and built using passive design strategies, use techniques to reduce both water consumption and waste production and even generate energy from the active use of renewable energies. Selected projects included: Botanical Garden of Montjuic in Barcelona and the Western Beach Promenade in Benidorm (Alicante), by Carlos Ferrater; the Spanish Pavilion at the Expo 2005 Aichi (Japan), by Farshid Moussavi and Alejandro Zaera, as well as the Spanish Pavilion at the Expo Zaragoza 2008, by Franciso J. Mangado and Florencio Manteca; the Hesperia Tower Hotel, by Alonso Balaguer Asociados and Richard Roger Partnership, and the Habitat Hotel in Barcelona, by Ruiz Geli, Vito Acconci and Ruy Ohtake; and the new head offices of Endesa and Telefónica in Madrid, both projected by Rafael de La-Hoz.
