Campo Baeza´s Sports Center

Sports Showcase


Shortly before the University of Mexico pinned on him the Attolini Medal, the Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza received this year’s COAM Award for the Sports Center of Francisco de Vitoria University in Pozuelo de Alarcón, in Madrid. It is an immaculate white object where the structure practically disappears and the envelope is glazed, resulting in a rare kind of showcase of sports, possessing an abstract force that makes it border on virtuality. Far from mellowing, as the years go by the language of Campo Baeza sharpens all the more: the master remains faithful to the aesthetic values that from the very beginning of his career he knew to make his own.
