CAMPO BAEZA, 2017 CLARKSON VISITING CHAIR, BUFFALO
The Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza has been named the 2017 Clarkson Visiting Chair of the University of Buffalo’s School of Architecture at the State University of New York. Accordingly, during the month of April 2017 he has given several lessons and conferences in Buffalo.
The prestigious Clarkson Visiting Chair honors an Architecture professor who is invited to the campus of the Buffalo Architecture School. Kenneth Frampton, and Architecture Pritzker award winners Peter Zumthor and Glenn Murcutt, have previously received this distinction.
Professor Campo Baeza’s lectures and seminars were followed by a large audience of students and professors of Architecture in a packed auditorium.
Campo Baeza presented seminars on: “Architecture as Poetry“, “Flat Horizontal Plane” and “Suspending Time”. “On Intellectual Enjoyment” was the title of the lecture in which he explained his latest works.
Professor Campo Baeza also participated in several critique classes on student projects where he publicly praised the high quality of the School of Architecture of Buffalo. Teachers and students alike thanked Campo Baeza for his intense participation in the School and his generous words.
