Campo Baeza – Selected Works
A comprehensive survey of the work of a master of modernist design today.
Alberto Campo Baeza, one of contemporary architectures most distinguished voices, is renowned for a body of work that exudes the power of radical simplicity. The architectural ideas expressed in his buildings have ranged in scale from such small but beautiful residential structures as the Ture´gano, Gaspar, and De Blas houses to cultural facilities such as Andalucias Museum of Memory in Granada, an addition to his earlier achievement, the Caja General Bank Headquarters. All share an uncompromising dedication to simple composition and demonstrate the ways in which he so brilliantly deploys disciplined restraint to achieve architectural silence in the face of the clamor of the modern city.
This monograph features projects spanning four decades of international architectural practice. Contributions by Richard Meier and David Chipperfield offer critical commentary on Campo Baezas persistent quest for beauty and relevance through his adherence to simplicity and a deeply felt devotion to modernist principles of architecture.
