Exhibition,

The third in the cycle of “Nature” exhibitions has opened at Maxxi, presenting the works and projects of architect Alberto Campo Baeza.



NATURE... CAMPO BAEZA. EL ÁRBOL DE LA CREACIÓN
The theme exhibition currently open at MAXXI embraces 20 years of production (from the Turégano House in 1988 to the most recent projects) of Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza.

Around a big central tree, the tree of creation, the architect?s creative process is analysed with a specific focus on the most intimate dimension and idiom of his work.
Alberto Campo Baeza is one of the purest, most radical Spanish architects. Natural light is the material he uses to build his spaces. His projects are built ideas; he creates powerful archetypical images, icons of contemporary architecture. (Manuel Blanco).

This is the third in the NATURE series of exhibitions conceived by Pippo Ciorra, senior curator at MAXXI Architettura: 4 exhibitions focusing on 4 different architects all asked to address the same theme in the same museum space. But in this case the installation is not designed by Alberto Campo Baeza himself but by architect Manuel Blanco, the exhibition curator.
