The Built Idea is a collection of some of the most important texts by the architect Alberto Campo Baeza in which he conveys his ideas about Architecture. “Architects reveal the keys to THEIR Architecture in their drawings, their floor plans, THEIR sections and also in their writings. It is important to appreciate the concise texts of Mies Va n 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.” “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.” “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.”
