ALBERTO CAMPO BAEZA
Campo Baeza is a famous Spanish architect born in 1946 who has achieved numerous awards in which they stand out: «The gold medal of architecture» in 2019, «The RIBA International award» in 2014 and «The Heinrich Tessenow medal» in 2013.
He lives in Madrid since he began his architecture studies at the ETSAM, where he would later start teaching classes as a professor of Architecture, with, curiously, Javier Carvajal, another famous architect in Spain.
I have personally chosen this architect for the variety of techniques that you find in his works and how he uses them in the right environment. Here is an example of the works that I liked the most.
- 2020 El Tecuán, Mexico
- 2016 Sotogrande , Cádiz
- 2015 Casa Bosco, Argentina
In addition to be an architect, Campo Baeza is a very good writer who has written hundreds of books dedicated mainly to architecture, drawing, art and space.
The most famous is this book:

manos 2009 )Think with your hands ( Pensar con las manos 2009 )
Reflection about : «Quiero ser un arquitecto» by Campo Baeza
After reading this inspirational text, its clear for me that study architecture is no impossible as some people says. Campo Baeza trys to answer all the questions that students have in this book, and define the architecture career as a hard and beautiful career that trains artists.
What Baeza explains is than an arquitect is a artist and a technician who makes people’s dreams come true.
Finally, after reading this book, I have a clearer idea of being an architect, and the responsibility that this entails. Last year I didn’t have the goal of studying architecture, it was just in my options, but little by little I’m realizing (thanks to these books) that being an architect is much more than you might think at first.
