Alberto Campo Baeza: The House of the Infinite

Annemie Van Thillo, Marc Dubois, Alberto Campo Baeza

Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers, 2017


We have built the most radical house we have ever made, an infinite plane facing the infinite sea. A house facing the Atlantic Ocean, at the water’s edge on a beach of Cadiz, like a piece of earthly paradise, where the Romans once lived in nearby Bolonia. We built a powerful podium in Roman travertine whose upper horizontal plane becomes the protagonist of the space. Inside the podium, underneath this platform like a temenos, is the house. Above and behind the stony platform, we have erected stone walls to protect us from the strong prevailing winds. As if it were an acropolis. A temenos where the gods descend to converse with humans and toast with Sherry on this plane on high looking out onto the infinite sea. The house of the infinite.
