Contemporary World Architects Series, Colour Plates. N° de réf. du libraire
Synopsis : Award-winning Spanish architect, instructor, and writer Alberto Campo Baeza showcases the edifices upon which he has built a reputation as one of the major talents in European design. Covering a range of projects that include houses, schools, governmental, and corporate buildings, Contemporary World Architects: Alberto Campo Baeza shows how his trademark work with "architectural boxes" puts Campo Baeza among the avant-garde.
Many of the ideas so precisely distilled by the architect are carefully kept in boxes. As the great Russian architect Berthold Lubetkin said at the end of his life, he only made "cement shoeboxes." At times, Campo Baeza does that. In this book, Turegano house is a white, cubical box; the house in Valdemoro oblong; Caja General in Granada is a large box in golden concrete transfixed by light, the same light that pierces all of his tensed architectural boxes with a thousand different shades like the "boite a miracles" of Le Corbusier. With beautiful color images, Contemporary World Architects: Alberto Campo Baeza will awe and inspire professionals in the field, and anyone who loves and appreciates strong design.
A propos de l'auteur: Born in Valladolid, Spain (1946), Alberto Campo Baeza earned a Ph.D. in architecture (1982) at Madrid's ETSAM university, where he was named Chairman of Design (1986). As a traveling instructor, Campo Baeza has taught classes at E.T.H. Zurich, Switzerland; Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; as well as colleges in Dublin, Ireland; Naples, Italy; and Copenhagen, Denmark.
Winning many awards for projects such as the Turegano House, Orihuela Public Library, and the Fene Town Hall, the work of Campo Baeza is also published widely in books and magazines. Moreover, an anthology of his own writings, The Built Idea, was complied and published by COAM in 1996.
