Her out-of-the-box approach garnered a groundbreaking distribution deal with Macmillan, as well as a joint venture with St. Martin’s Press.

“Architects reveal the keys to Architecture in their drawings, their floor plans, sections and also in their writings. It is important to appreciate the concise texts of Mies Van der Rohe or the more passionate expressions of Le Corbusier. And that is how I would like these texts, published here today, to be understood.” Alberto Campo Baeza (born Valladolid, Spain, 1946) is one of the most important architects of the modern period. The Built Idea presents a series of seminal texts in which he conveys his most deeply-held architectural ideas and convictions, exploring and explaining his foundational influences and subjects such as the importance of light, the work of his contemporaries, and the future of architecture, as well as accounts of his own work and personal anecdotes from a rich and successful life in architecture. “To use words that express one’s intentions clearly is not just a convenience for architects. One wants to let people know the meaning behind the things that are being made. My aim in publishing these texts is precisely that.” This book also includes a photographic documentation of Campo Baeza’s greatest works along with architectural sketches, plans, and models to provide a privileged insight into one of the greatest architectural minds working today. “And the reasoning on which one bases one’s work in their attempt at Architecture is what is going to be reflected here in these texts, some of it consciously, some unconsciously. Realizing the ideas expressed in these words in built works is of course the best proof that the ideas are valid and the words true.”+ More details
This Premium Edition of Contemporanea is limited to forty sets and it is presented in a clamshell box. It includes a hardcover copy of the book, an envelope with five signed 380 x 280 mm. photographic prints by Giovanni Presutti and a certificate of authenticity. Over the last few years, the architecture photographer Giovanni Presutti has photographed many of the most important buildings in major European cities, placing a special focus on constructions built in the last decade. The methodical research and surveys he carries out before each trip have led him to the conclusion that the majority of these buildings have two key aspects in common. The first is their very prominence; their devotion to aesthetics. It is clear that the works are produced by contemporary society, with even those featuring complicated internal structures increasingly characterized by attention to exteriority. It is important to note, however, that these buildings do not lack functionality. The second is the uniformity of style and planning. Presutti encountered similar ideas and materials in every country he visited, which were often completely unconnected to local traditions. This frequently made it difficult to place a certain building in a given country. It is as though the European Union, having not yet achieved political or social unity, has somehow succeeded at an architectural level. Giovanni Presutti explores these issues in Contemporanea, emphasizing the aesthetic qualities his subjects have in common: the lines, materials, and reflections, as seen from different perspectives. In the process, he has sought out pureness of form, and created a unique context; one that is representative of our time. A foreword by Antonio Belvedere, and an introduction by the Parisian-born curator, critic, and photography historian Gabriel Bauret, provide a critical perspective on this collection of images.+ More details
