Alberto Campo Baeza and Raphaël Gabrion’s Louvre Design Ties for First Place

Winning joint first prize in the recent competition hosted by the Louvre museum, Alberto Campo Baeza and Raphaël Gabrion have proposed a dark, cubic volume for the combined conservation facility and gallery to be built in Liévin. Though the final commission for the project was awarded to the other first place winner, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the proposal by Campo Baeza and Gabrion offers an interesting take on the relationship between art and architecture.

AD Classics: Caja Granada Savings Bank / Alberto Campo Baeza

The city of Granada in southern Spain is well reputed for its architectural heritage. It counts among its treasures the Alhambra and the Generalife, two of the finest triumphs of Moorish culture, in addition to countless works of European lineage from the centuries following the Reconquista. Since 2001, Granada has been able to lay claim to one of Spain’s finest contemporary projects as well, the Caja Granada Savings Bank, designed by the since-established firm of Alberto Campo Baeza.

Exhibiting in New York in the Air: Alberto Campo Baeza Exhibition

Exhibited at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York until this month, the work of Alberto Campo Baeza is on display to celebrate the awarding of the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture 2013. In a spare white quadrangular room in the main building and with only natural light from above, 24 white panels appear floating over the walls, without touching or marking them. It is an exhibition that is very sui generis, it is an Exhibition in the air; it is an exhibition that is very Campo Baeza. More information on the exhibition after the break.

Alberto Campo Baeza Awarded Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal 2012

Only a few weeks after being recognized for his excellence by the Universidad Politécnica of Madrid, the distinguished Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza has just been awarded the Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal for 2012 by the Alfred Toepfer Foundation in Hamburg. The award, given since 1962, is a recognition of work that, like that of German architect Heinrich Tessenow (1876-1950), is "uncompromising, sober and essential."
