ALBERTO CAMPO BAEZA
He was born in Valladolid and began his career in Cadiz.
His works range from small houses such as Casa Turégano, Casa Gaspar or Casa de Blas to large works such as Caja Granada or the Consejo Consultivo de Zamora.
His work has been exhibited in the Crown Hall in Chicago or in the Basilica of Palladio or in the Tempietto of S. Pietro in Montorio or in Santa Irene in Istanbul or in the MAXXI in Rome. This year 2013 at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York.
He has been Professor of Projects in Madrid since 1986 and has taught at ETH Zurich, EPFL Laussanne, Penn University in Philadelphia, and last year at CUA Washington. And in many other universities around the world.
This year, he received the Tessenow Gold Medal 2013 from the German architects in Hamburg, the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize 2013 from the American architects in New York and the International Award Architecture in Stone 2013 from the Italians in Verona. And there are still some other major awards in the wind.
His library contains more books of poetry than of architecture. He has no car, no TV, no mobile phone and no watch.
And he is happy.
