Alberto CAMPO BAEZA

Alberto CAMPO BAEZA

Alberto Campo Baeza has more books of poetry than books about architecture. He doesn't see architecture as an expression of technique, but of man's spiritual relationship with space and time. The keys to his poetics are gravity building space and light building time.
His best-known and most widely appreciated projects include the Turégano and de Blas homes in Madrid, the Gaspar home in Cádiz, the Rufo home in Toledo, the Moliner home in Zaragoza and the Olnick Spanu home in Garrison, New York; in 2013 he completed the VT home in Zahara-Cadiz.
Baeza's best-known public buildings include the BIT Center in Inca-Mallorca, the Museum of Memory of Andalucía in Granada, the Benetton nursery in Treviso and the offices of the Junta de Castilla y León in Zamora.
In addition to his professional activity, Baeza is a professor of design at Madrid School of Architecture, ETSAM. He has taught at ETH in Zurich, at EPFL in Lausanne and at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia as well as in Dublin, Naples, Virginia, Copenhagen, and at the Bauhaus in Weimar and has held numerous conferences all over the world. The awards he has received include the Torroja Prize for his Caja Granada project. In 2013 he was awarded the HEINRICH TESSENOW gold medal and the RIBA International Fellowship for 2014.
The architect has published "La idea Construìda", "Pensar con las manos" and his most recent collection of texts, "Principia architectonica". Baeza's work has been featured in exhibitions at the Crown Hall in Chicago, the Urban Center in New York, Saint Irene Church in Istanbul, the MA Gallery of Toto in Tokyo, MAXXI in Rome and other prestigious locations.
