“We define stereotomic architecture as that one in which gravity is discountinuosly transferred, in a continuous structural system where the constructive continuity is completed. It´s a massive architecture, petreous, heavy. That one that sits on the soil as emerging from there. It´s the architecture that follow the light, that one that pierce the walls so the light could enter. It´s the architecture of the podium, the plinth. That one of the stylobate. It´s, summarizing, the cave architecture.” Campo Baeza.

“We define tectonic architecture as that one in which gravity is discountinuosly transferred, in a structural system with knots where the construction is syncopated. It´s a boney architecture, woody, light. That one that settle on the soil as raising on tiptoe. It´s the architecture that safeguard from light, that look after their hollow to control the light coming inside. It´s the shell architecture. The one of the abacus. It´s, summarizing, the architecture of the cottage.” Campo Baeza.
