Alberto Campo Baeza to speak at Australian Institute of Architects events in March

Madrid-based Alberto Campo Baeza will visit Australia this March for the Australian Institute of Architects’ International Speaker Series. Speaking in Sydney on Tuesday, 6th March, Melbourne on Wednesday 7th March and Perth on Thursday 8th March, this multi-award winning architect will uncover the logic of the pure forms evident throughout his work.

Renowned for its purist and minimalist qualities, Campo Baeza’s work has evolved from the smoothness of the white stucco of his first residential works to the rougher textures of exposed concrete or work stone of greater scale. With a portfolio spanning residential and commercial projects over four decades, one of his most celebrated creations is the Headquarters of the Caja de Granada, built in 2001 in Granada, Spain which won the Eduardo Torroja Award in 2003.

In addition, he has received numerous awards including the First Award for the Spanish Pavilion at the 2000 Venice Biennale, the Award of the Bienal Miami (2000) and the COAM Award (2002) for his De Blas House in Madrid’s Sevilla La Nueva.

Tickets are on sale now with early bird prices closing on 13th February. Click here for details.
